I've been reading the various threads about travel mugs and cupholders in the SLK. None of them hit on exactly what I'm looking for, and many of them are talking about cupholders on older models up above the COMAND screen (which I don't have on my 2013 R172). So, I thought I'd start a new thread.

Does anyone have a link to a 20 ounce insulated travel mug for sale on the internet that fits in the cupholders on an R172 which are located in the console between the seats. I've attached a photo of the cupholders in my car for reference. I'm not interested in screwing anything into the console, and I don't want to convert the storage compartment with the lid into a cupholder.
Thanks.
Steve

Lotsa links. Here's one https://www.amazon.ca/CGO70121-Autoseal-20-Ounce-Vacuum-Insulated-Stainless/dp/B00JE352NO#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div

4.8 out of 5 with 600+ opinions.

IF I was needing one, I'd get that one. I dont eat or drink in her.

Having said that, I do give a lot of weight to 1* / 5 comments.
Have you actually tried this travel mug in the console cupholder of an R172? It looks a little wide. Also, the Canadian Amazon won't let me order it (I'm in the U.S.), but I believe I see the same product on the U.S. Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Contigo-AUTOSEAL-Vaccuum-Insulated-Stainless-Travel/dp/B00JE352NO/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?keywords=CONTIGO%2BCGO70121&qid=1570306708&sr=8-2-fkmr0&th=1). I'm going to give it a try.
Thanks.

OK, I received this travel mug and it definitely doesn't fit in my R172 cupholder. Anyone have other suggestions?
Thanks.

Made in China... not in my SLK
I daresay you probably should not be driving your SLK cos there are components lurking somewhere in that car that is "Made in China (MiC)"... These days (circa 21st Century), MiC is as ubiquitous as eating breakfast... unless you are not a breakfast person...:):cool:
