interior door panels/cup holder questions

I have a 2017 cabrio and the "net" holders on the interior doors [from 2010] has been replaced with "stairstep" permanent pockets.... if that makes sense to anyone. Bottom line, no place to put bottle of water, coffee cup or anything unless you don't mind everything resting at a 45 degree angle. Has anyone figured out how to "flatten the bottom" of that interior door for better storage.
I have coffee travel mugs that do not fit in the cup holders [they got smaller, too & I cracked up when dealer gave me a SMART car travel mug that didn't fit either] haha.
I do not want to break out the dremel to carve away to adapt. The suggestion to create a box for the passenger seat to hold coffee, water, maps, USB thumb drives for music, and other travel comforts is the only suggestion, but no room for passenger is not a solution either.

I was sorry to give up my 2010 and knew that the 2017 was a model change... and from a comfort, stability & "get up and go" it was a wonderful improvement. But getting a red cabrio was a long wait and the whole interior AND electronics has been a BIG disappointment, so I'm wondering how to work with what I have... at least as long as the car payments last --> laughing! :shrug:

Change is difficult for us all. After living with our 451 it took a bit to feel at home in our 453 but it has happened and now, after 13 months, it's second nature. I bought a couple drink cups tha fit the cup holders - no big deal.
