I saw a fascinating cup holder. It is in the 2004 Mercedes G500. (Could be in earlier versions too - not sure). Anyhow, it looks like a little basketball hoop large enough for a glass to fit into. It folds down out of the way when not in use. Very slick and I think it would look really nice in a 996. Anyone have any thoughts? It is $60 at the dealer. I'll try to take a digital picture of it next time I am at the dealer. I would love to install two of these. Only problem, where in the center area, either near the radio or some other convenient place could I put it? I think it needs 2 or 3 mounting screws.

Hello,

I just bought Tequipment cup holders at the Porsche Dealer for my 1999 996. They are about $33 and work fine. They clip into the left and right dash air vents. The cup holder you mention, I think, I bought from Griots. I've also seen them on Ebay for less $. I rivited a bent sheetmetal bracket in the back which hook into the center dash vent of my Mercedes and my 944. ;)

The ones I am talking about have nets. They actually look like basketball hoops with nets attached. It is different than the ones from Griots which have the hoop but are plastic squares. I don't know if I like those. What did you think of them?
