[Cupholder](//muut.com/u/mbcaforum/s1/:mbcaforum:hzCG:cupholder.jpg.jpg) Has anyone tried to use one of these on a W123, specifically at 300TD? I feel like the space between the seat and the console is too large but if not, this could be a good solution to the nasty habit of us Americans demanding we have a hot beverage with us at all times. Thoughts?

In my 1981 300TD, which has the W123 designation, there is insufficient room between the center console and the front seats to fit what you have pictured. So this cupholder won't work.

I purchased a cop holder for my W123 sedan from SBaxter65@gmail.com. The cupholder fits nicely into the center console and is made of wood with a Zebrano finish. Holds two cups plus a change holder. Nice piece. I think I paid around $65 plus shipping. The maker is located in Orange County, Southern California.

J, yes, it won't fit even with the thin part shown in the photo. There is barely one inch of space between the seat and the center console in W123 cars. Bill seems to have found a good solution described above. Use that instead.

Looks great. Any chance you will make them in solid black like the one on the left?
