Looking for cupholder for my 300CD

I have been trying to find this cupholder for some time in the cream color. I have a palamino one right now and it bothers me bc it does not match. Any help would be great. Thanks guys!

You might try a auto paint supply store and get a spray paint product made by SEM especially for vinyl and plastic trim. They should be able to match the cream color pretty close.

Thanks, I will probably do that as a last resort.

I don't believe they were ever made as all installed cup holders of that era are aftermarket and not OE from Mercedes.

When MB caved to market pressure on cup holders . . . they realized that they had to come up with Stability/Traction Control, Adaptive Braking, radar controlled Cruise Control, Inattentive Driver systems . . . or they risk losing customers.

You're right, they didn't. But, a company made a series of cupholders that were covered in matching vinyl. "Performance Mercedes" use to carry them, but they do not anymore. The pictures are of the one in my car right now, but it isn't the correct color for the interior. I may try to have the piece redone in the correct cream vinyl.
