found new use for Drink Holder.

I saw a new SLK with paper plates and reached into my Glove box to get an SLKWorld card. After placing the card on the car and leaving, I had a handfull of cards in my hand.

Don't know why, but I tossed them into the center slot in the drink tray.

They kind of sat ajar for a while then I noticed they had fallen into the tray nice and neat.

The tray seems to be designed to hold business cards in between the drinks.

So now, easy access to my SLKWorld cards!!!

No pic. LOL

Just the Small business card size rectangle area in between where the drink cups are located.

Anyway, Just found out about it on my way to work this afternoon. LOL

No camera with me.

Don't worry John. The SLK R171 has not one, not two but 3 built in holders for SLKWorld cards.

Initially I thought it was a holder for credit/debit cards. But who would leave such cards inside the car.
MB was probably wondering why Bill waited so long to come up with those cards.

I think on the 171 the cup holder is of a different design.

I keep my Blackberry in the cup holder. Fits perfect and I can see the message indicator light when a new message arrives.

Business Card Holders... I can't even find my Cup Holders!.

Are they on all SLKs??

I've looked at me storage compartment to see if the lid opens another way to reveal the holders but they remain elusive??

cup holder is an option in some regions. business card holder depends on the other options in your car.

Somewhere on the R171 it states cup/coin holder. Not a clue how it holds coins. But it does say that.
