Has anyone taken the cupholder out of the dash? Most people have a problem with it coming out. Mine will not push all the way in. It sticks out about an inch. Any ideas?

The most popular cup-holder mod is to put a turbo timer inthere. I think it's the apexi that has the matching leds and size.

It is a Greddy III turbo timer that is best fit...

Same here. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled out of Wendy's to find my Biggie all over my front seat. I have cloth seats too, so they are always stained. What the hell was Audi thinking when they made them!!?!?!?!? They don't even have sides!

F'ing worthless.

That was so the Americans didn't complain they didn't have cupholders... The TT wasn't supposed to have cup holders so they just put in a thin peice of metal tubing to hold a drink... Freaking americans...

How do you take it out?

Anyone know of any cupholder adapters that fit in a small cupholder but hold a bigger size cup? I don't mind having the center armrest up if it means that I don't have to hold my coffee between my legs...

Ok, to take it out, its simple, just pop off the center panel top piece, its the small surround around the emergancy flasher and fog light switches as well as the cup holder, then youll see how to do the rest. Also, my buddy was telling me that in germany and all over europe, those guys dont drink bigass drinks like we do, not even soda in a can, and its rare if they do. So they have hella tiny cup holders, but in america we americans love super sizing and biggies (p.s. off topic, but a frosty sounds so good right now) so they dont seem to fit well in our cupholders.

I have the Greddy Full Auto, fits in there as well, a little short on both sides, but not too noticable. I like the way it looks, I found one in black, they come in either black or silver.

Works pretty nice for a piece of crap, huh? Mine used to work nice too, but it never held anything nicely...

i don't know what you are talking about. it holds my wendy's, burgerking, etc cups. holds my coffee. a gatorade bottle really well!!-kinda jam it in there. also water bottles..

the only drink that has ever fallen out of there is an arrowhead bottle when i was taking a corner really fast. but the lid was on so no biggie

just image search "greddy turbo timer" and click on the ones that have the black one. alot of them get you to a place that sells them.

but this location is very nice:

hidden and tucked away. unobrusive, but there when you need it. that pencil holder is pretty lame anyways.

Air Spencer is what you want, its called the Air Spencer CS-X3, there are a couple scents if you google. The spencer is black chrome and blue, however if you search online, there is one with green inserts and also one with red inserts, they are different scents however, the blue one comes with squash. Its amazing. I have the red spencer with a blue squash refill in mine. I went with red, cause it matched the new racing seats, lol.

Why do folks buy giant drinks that they know won't fit in their cupholders and then complain about it being the car's problem? Just get an appropriate sized bevvy.

Cans, Red Bull, and travel coffee cups fit perfectly in all the cupholders. Nalgene bottles fit perfectly between the seat adjust lever and the seat. I've yet to have a spill in the car.

Sometimes its not our choice. For instance, most of the burger food joints around here, their smallest cup (diameter) is still too big for the cup holder. They make them wide and short and call it a small. I throw all those in my side door pocket thing. The cup has to squeeze in there, so you have to sip the top off first so it doest spill.
