#8 of 9 07 Mazda Miata MX-5 Door Panel w/cupholder

Can anyone give me some suggestions of where I can purchase new inner door panels without the cupholder in them. The cupholder digs into my leg after a while of driving.. Please help

The 2009 models are better, but you'd have to get 2 new door panels and it may be too expensive to be worth it.
I can make 2 suggestions -
* consider removing or modifying the dead pedal. I cut about about 1/2" off the spacers on the back of mine, reinstalled it, and gained half an inch of leg room. That lowered the angle of my knee and put less pressure there.
* add padding to the outside of the cup holder. I used two-sided tape and put some black foam padding there
So now my knee is at a smaller angle and it's padded, so it's OK. Budget home-made solution but it works, I'm far more comfy now.
