I have a 96 S500 and I have two cup holders built into the center console beside the phone. The console is a two part contraption with the bottom part fixed with a slider over a compartment that holds all the crap that ends up in a car. The top part opens to hold the phone and there are a couple of drink holders there. I don't know if your 95 is the same but apparently not. I did buy a cup holder from that supposidly is the one used in a later SL. I got it and it looks great, but I just can't bring myself to mount it on the driver side door with screws. You might ask, why do I need another one if I already have two?. Answer is I don't like raising the armrest on the center console to get to the drink holders. I like resting my right arm on the center console and I can't when I have the cover up with a travel mug in the cup holders.
I don't use the phone as it is an older analog model, so I really want the center console in the down position.

Thumbs up If you want cupholders...

...get an American SUV. My wife's 2002 YukonXL has plenty of cupholders, each one big enough to carry a Big Gulp drink or to hold a small dog in place. Cupholders are an inherently Ameircan invention

My understanding is that drinking ANYTHING while driving on the Autobahn is verboten. Other drivers will even report you if they see you doing it. But thinking about it, I'm not sure I want to be around some bozo slooshing his big gulp in his lap while drive at the triple digit speeds that almost all of our MBs are designed to do. Fair trade-off to to me. Drive two hours (240 miles!) get out, get drink, stretch legs, get back in drive another two hours, repeat as needed. After a little over eight hours of driving, you have traveled 1000 miles. So let's put it to a (totally useless) vote. How many of you are willing to give up eating, drinking, reading, make-up applying, shaving and all the other things we have seen on the road in return for open road speed limits over 100?
