Default cup holder modification

Has anyone modified their cup holder to better fit a coffee mug with a handle?

I usually just remove the middle piece, but then the mug moves all around.

I was thinking I could just cut out the center piece with the springs which would then allow the mug to sit down and be secured.

What about a cup holder insert to bring it up higher?

Taking the simple approach, eh? I'll go to the opposite extreme then.

You could always trade your car in for a Honda fit. Those things have cup holders out the wazoo.

Honda Engineer: "Hey, there's an empty space here, should we leave it empty?"
Honda Marketing: "No, see if you can mold another cup holder to fit there."

You could even make some money on the deal.

I'm just attached to the one I have! True a "travel" mug solves the problem, but it just feels dirty.

Is it small enough to put a cooler type coozie on the outside? I had to do that in one car to prevent my travel mug from moving around. Now I take a folded shop paper towel and line the opening in a "C" shape. My mug fits okay but I hate ratteling
