Question Cup Holder's from Griot's - Where's best place to mount them.

I read about the cup holders sold by Griot's Garage and bought two. I have a 91 300E and wonder if anyone with similar car has installed them and where. Although this is a 91 it does have rider's side air bag.

The holders really are first class product, I just don't want to drill holes and find out the location is not a good one.

Thanks for anyone's comments.

Mount them..

...just underneath the door opener. I'll post a pic of mine on my '91 300 E if you'd like.

Good luck!

Just under the door handle is the best place. I attached mine low enough so that a regular soda can, snapple bottle, or regular size drink wouldn't interfere with the door operation. Of course, if I buy a Big Gulp at the 7-11, I have to remove the drink to open the door. The reason why I didn't mount it lower is that it hits my knee.

I started a post on this cup holder a couple of months ago and it got well over 500 hits and pages of posts. Pictures are posted here showing the mounting location.

Do a search on cupholders, or even do a search under my name 'suginami' in the members section by doing an advanced search and then scrolling through all of my posts.

Oh, btw, you don't really need to drill holes. The screws are self-tapping. The material you're going to screw into is sort of a pressed board material. It holds the cupholder tightly, but you need all the grip you can get.

Has anyone found a way to attach this nice cup holder WITHOUT damaging the leather?

To much to ask? Double-sided tape just laughed at the thought.

I'm afraid double sided tape won't cut the mustard.
