Cup holder deal

The lack of a cup holder on my 560SL has been a bit of an inconvenience. I looked around at various solutions and generally either didn't like the looks or thought the price was too high. I then got in touch with Mike DuBois of Autonotions, http://shop.autonotions.com/main.sc. He makes cup holders for the 107, the 126 and the 201 chassis. I liked the looks of his product, but still thought it was a little expensive at $79.95 and I wasn't sure how well it would match my interior. Mike also sells on e-bay. His seller name is Morgansdad1. After a few e-mail exchanges with Mike, he told me that I could buy his product and see if I liked the quality and the finish. If I wasn't happy with it, he would gladly refund my money. In addition to this he told me that he was in the process of cutting his prices to $54.99 for the wood grained cup holders and $34.95 for the all vinyl ones. I figured that I couldn't beat that offer. When I asked if he also gave an MBCA discount, he said that he didn't, but wanted to know more. After discussing it with him, he said he would be happy to give an additional 10% discount to MBCA members. Now that's a great deal!! I did order one and am very happy with the product. I also have to say what a pleasure it was to deal with Mike. He was always extremely responsive, courteous and helpful. I have nothing to gain from recommending him, but I think he is worthy of your consideration.



I'm not sure whether Mike's website is set up to accept the MBCA discount yet. If not, just send Mike an e-mail via his "Contact Us" link and he will take care of it for you. He will be asking for your MBCA number.

Just received the cup holder yesterday.

Perfect fit on my sl. Color matched perfectly.

This is a must have for these cars. You can even store
stuff under the holder or in the cups.

Mike, thank you

I just tried my 107 cup holder in my 123 and it won't fit. I'd contact Mike at Autonotions and ask him. He might make one up for you or know if one of the other ones would fit..
