View Full Version : clever cup holder space ideas

05-06-2008, 10:20 PM
so my dash cup holder crapped out on me today, giving me an excuse to put something there. ive been debating a turbo timer or ebc, but i was just wondering what else could go there, and if anyone else has put something more creative in that space. i think im leaning towards a turbo timer, as my future plans include a boost machine which would be stupid to have with a ebc right? (probably a stupid question) but im still open to putting something else there, maybe hardwiring a passport 8500x or something. so if anyone has ideas, or has done something cool, post it up!

I think the cupholder is great already

before, i WAS thinking of mounting an electronic boost gauge in there, but the logistics were just too out there... but i think a mount for an ipod would be kinda cool.

Bump I was wondering what to do with the space when mine stopped going in all the way and the faceplate fell off

it would be sweet if you put a E=BC in there tilted and turn towards you... i think i might have to do that since i hate our cup holders with passion

might be able to do a conceled V1 display, but you'll need a valentine one first...

I used mine to mount my XM Radio. I drilled holes through the face of the cup holder cover for the wiring so it all goes back in to the dash.

If you have an ipod or a zune I thought this was a good idea ...

With ipod, open



Without ipod, closed


This was for a pre-facelift but I am sure it can be made to work on a facelift model as well.

^^^nice, so the ipod docks right in there?

and ps, no good to do both boost machine and ebc right?

Yeah, there is a write up on Audi World, so I will see if I can find it and post the link.

Of course you can go the obvious way, which you mentioned.

I use my clever cup holder for holding a cup of coffee, uh, cleverly.

I must be having flashbacks. I could swear I saw a glass piece on that desk. [:p]
