l was switching out my centre console handle, because, it was squealing like crazy(the new handle has a new set-up, one less notch- A 163 680 03 84 7211)...and l noticed this.."a coin holder"..."What an idiot"...l never noticed it before..please tell me l'm not the not the only one...so l put some coins in....The second pic is of the old part..the new part does not have the centre prong, which, when moved squeaks like hell....

I've taken that thing out twice and never noticed - good catch.

I wonder how useful it is though, tucked away where it is. BTW, I love your BBS rims, CA.

Noticed it several times, and I don't like it.

I have to put my arm in some awkward position to get some coins.

I think the coin holder should've been placed out on the center console somewhere. We use the pop out ash tray to hold coins.

One of the things i miss about the 2000 ML was the superior coin holder that was easy to get to. I think the 02+ design is just stupid it cant hold very much and only holds 2 types of coins. With my 2000 ML i would normally would end up with $5 in change every few weeks.

l agree guys.....not the most user friendly system out thier. You should try it up here in Canada, where we have "loonies and toonies"......they both don't fit.....[}:)]

I also hate it....

Does not hold many coins and you have to bend your arm to get to the coins. I did load it with quarters "just in case", but I think the next time I use them is just before I sell the car....

Yah.. it's a '00. I also didn't realize that there's a storage bin underneath the passenger seat until a few weeks of ownership. LoL
