Thank you for having me here.

I design and manufacture parts and accessories for young and oldtimers, using additive and traditional methods and joining what’s best in two worlds.
Just recently I finalized the cupholder for Mercedes W113 that I’m pleased to introduce to this group.

Basic specifications:
  • Core structure made from industry grade plastic (3d printed)
  • Inside layer made of 3mm foam – allows ideal fitment for all center consoles (standard dimension is 120 mm but from experience I know that this dimension may differ slightly)
  • Outside layer made of original Mercedes vinyl (MBTex 341 Black)
  • Chromed elements made from inox steel – fit ideally to Pagoda chromed elements
  • Default colour is black. All other colours available on demand (see the list below)
Price:
  • Price is 700 PLN which is approx. 173 USD / 148 EUR (PayPal exchange rate from 17th of Oct.)
  • Worldwide shipping flat fee is 100 PLN which is approx. 25 USD / 21 EUR
  • Payment via PayPal – please send me a message on Messenger for further details
Shipping
  • Items are usually produced in 2 week time from making an order (depending on vinyl type time may vary)
  • All items are shipped with FedEx with tracking number provided via PayPal – shipping time is usually 3-7 working days (depending on location)
Vinyl colours available
  • MB TEX 341 BLACK
  • MB TEX 342 MAROON
  • MB TEX 343 RED
  • MB TEX 345 BLUE
  • MB TEX P346 DARK BROWN

Do you have a design for a single one?

I understand this is removable, correct? You can put it in when you need it or remove it quickly?

The single version can be easily done - no problem.

I can cut the price by half so 350 PLN + delivery (as promotion) as normally it would cost 30% less as the amount of work to finish it is pretty much the same.

Installation:
This is completely non invasive. You just need to push in to install / pull out to remove. The philosophy behind accessories I make is to make them 1) non invasive so your car can be easily turn into the original state 2) fitting the style of each car.

PM me in case of being interested

Lukasz, you could perhaps attach some drawing with the dimensions of the cup holder. Also: how much cover material would be needed for single or double version (you do not have my leather colour on the list).

What is the diameter of the cup?

Depth is 65mm
Internal diameter (TOP) is 74mm
Internal diameter (BOTTOM) is 68mm

Cup holder works great with all standard coffe cup sizes, cans (like Coca-Cola, or Beer - non alcoholic of course) or small bottle of water.

Tomorrow I'll provide more pictures that shows differnet cups/cans/bottles put into it

I'll provide some drawing tomorrow + some more pics.

For double version I'd need approx 40x50 cm piece of material, for single 40 x 25 cm

I'm from Warsaw so I can collect the material personally from you if you are interested.

PM sent, thank you.

As I wrote, I would be looking for two single ones, to configure as needs arise.

In my every day car I have a cup holder that is cooling or heating the cups. Any chance for that? ;) ;) ;)

Link to a post on adding cup holders to your console. Cost under $30 not as pretty but works well.

Nice! I am very curious if this dark blue MB tex colour is similar to the leather I have for you for my cup holders. I would appreciate if you could compare, if you have some of that MB Tex left. Knowing the supplier and catalogue number would be very helpful.

I think it would be best if the upper surface of the cup holder is flush with the shelf sides with carpet in.

I received the cup holders made by Lukasz for me in the dark blue MB-Tex earlier this week. I think the unit looks excellent in my car. I like the fact that I can remove them if I wish to, or put them in if I know that I will need them.

The quality of Lukasz's workmanship is excellent and he was a pleasure to deal with

Looks great. Is it a box construction or are the ends open?  I’m wondering if little things can slide underneath. Can you post a picture of the underside?

Will post a picture of underside later, from memory it is a closed box. The "cups" are recessed into the unit

So it’s an outer box with an inner box insert. Nice job with the covering (mb Tex & leather wrap) 👍

Dear Andrew,

Thank you very much for posting a review and your kind words. I must say that I really enjoy making accessories for young/oldtimers that make the driving experience even more pleasurable :)
