Performance Upgrade: preferred aftermarket solution
I really wanted to post this in the "Performance Upgrade" thread, just for fun. But I decided that my humor might not be appreciated by the wrenches there.
So, I'm looking for everyone's preferred aftermarket (Benz or off-brand) solution for the missing link to my R170 driving experience. That is...What is your favorite travel mug that actually fits in the factory cup holder? I've been on a quest to find the right travel mug for as long as I've owned the car...2.5 years. The mugs I've tried are either: too fat and dont fit at all, or too thin and tall and wobble precariously, or have a handle too low and dont set in properly, etc. I've even tried two different MB brand mugs, (one with a wood-grain look that I was tricked into before realizing that it was cheap and tacky photo-print cheesyness. The other a nice looking one with a black MB logo on a flat black ceramic) neither of which worked for reasons mentioned above.
It seems like the R170 cup holder is designed for Starbucks to-go cups only, ideally in the 8oz single-shot size (Perhaps it's a corporate partnership agreement). But I'd like a travel mug, preferably 16 oz, insulated, that stays in place in the cup-holder, and looks great with my black R170 (black, satin black, black leather, brushed stainless, CNC machined titanium. you get my drift.
