Well, this time I'm looking for a new piece of carpet for that area, below the front arm-rest area, since when I bought my Benzo two years ago it had a white paint-stain on it. It was black carpet. Know where I can buy this piece online, and any part #, whatever?

Both GAHH and World Upholstry sell the MB carpets.

However, the smallest length they sell is a yard and costs about $80. Shipping to Finland would add quite a lot to the bill. You should be able to find a source in Europe.

Hey Axel,

Thanks for the info. What's the name of that carpet piece -- anyone know? I can't find it under the parts search from GAHH, for ex.

The small "carpet" piece I need is where the pictured storage box goes.

RS ;-)

Is it called "central console" carpet? Can that small piece really be 80 bucks? Any of you improvised with getting a piece of plush carpet (color according to your preference) and cutting it to shape to fit in that space?

My local carpet and rug store sells something very similar in appearance to the MB stuff that sits in the centre console for less than $5/yard.

Check with your local rug guy first, you might be pleasantly suprised!

If your carpet colour is black, it should be fairly easy to match it up from almost any source.

Any other colour starts getting more difficult, the grey is NLA from MB in Australia at least. GAHH sell it as Axel says, but it is not cheap.

What do you reckon about the cup holder?

Hey folks,

Thanks for further input on this thread from May. My interior carpet is black, so, as wisely suggested by you guys, I'll just get some black plush carpet cut to size at a carpet store here. One more thing -- I recently ordered from Canada (Sundin International in Vancouver) this W126 cup holder, pictured below, for my centre console. Haven't received it yet. Will do in about 3 weeks. Reckon it'll fit better with the carpet first installed? Anybody know?

It should fit better with the carpet removed.

I had to trim a very, very small amount off the rear of the cupholder to get it to fit 100%. Your mileage may vary.

:thumbsup: Cheers, Steve...good to know...I won't have to spend time looking for that carpet-piece now, and I won't miss not having that carpet-piece when the snug-fit cupholder is in there.

I bought that cupholder for my 124. It fits perfectly. No need to remove the carpet.
