    Haha. I was like that when I got my first California Scent, you got the best scent too, the rest aren't as potent.

    I had mine like that for a while but I prefer the cover over the cup holders, looks a bit more tidy.

    I stick mine in the little hole in the back in between the two front seats.

    This just reminded me of how annoying the cupholder is. Good idea on the air freshener though.

    Great idea, I hate hanging stuff from the rear view mirror and I never use the cup holders.

    Any idea where you get them from at a decent price?

    eBay. Buying in bulk you can get them for around £2 each. Last a good while too.

    Can also get them from Halfords and places like that but they're more expensive.

    Can't beat them though!

    That's where my Calfornian Scents used to live all the time.

    Even better.... the narrow long compartment in your centre console just in front of the cupholders and next to your handbrake (see below) is the perfect size to snugly hold a McDonald's ketchup/BBQ/Sweet & Sour sauce.
    It makes driving whilst dipping your chips in sauce and talking on your mobile phone at the same a lot easier.

    Try it. You heard it here first.

    Ashtray! Ive been keeping my California scents in the cupholder for as long as ive had the car. Just becomes a problem when i have a drink in the car.

    Word of advice to people, never take those pads out the can and put them on something. The perfume will melt plastics down!

    Also, does anyone with leather interior find the smells aren't that strong? In my old cloth interior car it was soaked into everything, in the audi its strong for a few days and thats it, just doesnt soak into the interior.

    My California scents sit on top of my change. Though my change merely contains penny's as I like to be a bit trigger happy at the pump.

    I always find the gap between the seat frame and the floor tunnel around all the holes in the carpet is perfect for keeping loose change you never want to spend again because there is no viable way that anything that goes here you can get back,upto now i have lost 20 snouts,£30 ish in change,a sausage roll,an old collectable jazz mag and 2 springer spaniel family pets (of ours).

    Just to be different i wasnt impressed with the california car scents,ok i only tried one but i didnt think it lasted long at all

    I can't, I removed the ashtray and replaced with the ashtray delete part, MUCH more useful than the ashtray imo. I advise getting rid of the ashtray, they are a complete waste of space!

    Yup! The ash-tray delete part is only around £10 too. Bargain!

    I prefer the ashtray me, rather than the ashtray delete. Change would fly all over the shop without the ashtray!

    Haha. Yes.... It's a great place. I have a box of 300 of them that go out as a freebie with orders on the site. People love them.

    Well I'm gonna blow some further minds.... The small hole next to it, is perfect Red Bull can size. I have my Audi change holder in the bigger of the two.

    Was that change holder from the Audi gift shop? If so, why store £10 in change in a £16,000 change holder :D

    I always thought the smaller cup holer was designed specifically for Red Bull-style cans?

    Dunno how much it was... Got it for free from Audi. It's designed to fit the new A1's and A3's and a few others if I remember rightly. It just about sits in mine.

    I just use it for golden nuggets for parking machines...
