View Full Version : Cup Holder in dash?

11-30-2006, 06:47 PM
I have a 98 A4 and the cup holder is under the e-brake, and many tall coffee cups will not allow the arm rest to fold down. I also have 3 empty spots on the dash to the right of the 4 way flasher.

Is there a cup holder that will fit in that spot instead of the empty switch locations? I did a search but could not find this info?

Personally I don't mind the cupholders under the armrest, I just wish that they were a bit wider. I have to have my Dunkin Donuts coffee, but their cups don't fit well.

I use a clip on style on the XR, but I like the clean smooth look of the A4 interior, and would like to keep it stock, if there is a usefull in dash cup holder. I saw what may have been a 99 A4 the other night that had one in the dash , so that makes me wonder if the 98 will adapt?

if you read around, I think you will find some threads about shokan, although they may have been lost in the great crash of '06. So to help you out... just know that they were all horror stories
