European 124 Spiders apparently don’t come equipped with cup holders, and Peter T has been on the lookout for alternatives to the expensive official Mopar options:
- 6LE32U0DAA for the right side unit, that will also fit in the RHD forward passenger-side slot (list price of $359 U.S. – ouch!)
- 6LE33U0DAA for the left side unit, that will also fit in the LHD forward passenger-side slot (list price of $359 U.S. – ouch!)
- 68307701AA for silver add-on bezels (list price of $260 U.S. – another ouch!)
So, by my calculations, if you want a pair with silver bezels, that comes out to $978!!(MSRP, per https://www.moparwholesaleparts.com/oem-parts/mopar-cupholder-console-mounted-6le32u0daa?origin=pla&gclid=Cj0KCQjwjpjkBRDRARIsAKv-0O2y6ixk-MM95pMnzqzHSdbv98dJCXpthb_vw5b8jRfpJtDy1XaJoVoaAj5rEALw_wcB ).
Yes, I can see why you’ve been searching around, Peter. Here’s his discovery (along with his photos) of one alternative:
The Helinox cup holder is even sturdier than the original one, does not wobble and when in place, can be flipped up, which the original cup holder cannot do! Helinox stands for high quality stuff. As an accessory for a camp chair, at $30 U.S., a bit expensive, but compared to the Mopar one – cheap!
In Italy, no cup holders come with the car, so I bought one original one (right hand side) which sits behind my elbow, without being in my way fortunately.
Peter added later 😉 :
For two cup holders the official cost is €189 and for the two silver rings €155. You can get them cheaper at the blackparts store and even cheaper at mx5parts.co.uk. Nobody beats the Helinox $30 though!
