    Rear Arm Rest Cup Holder

    About a year ago I made myself a cup holder to go in the rear armrest of the A4. 2 spaces for drinks and a storage area.
    This one...


    and it's served it's purpose brilliantly. With a 9 and a 4 year old in the back it's been perfect for our outings.

    I've now made one that fits even better..


    and wrapped it in a bit of carbon vinyl.

    What you think?
    Any suggestions what could be added to it?

    Cheers
    Kris

    They are on Ebay, standard or wrapped in carbon vinyl.

    Sl4ve - do you know if the rear armrest in the B7 is the same as the B6?

    Also trying to make a twin holder for the front armrest. I know Audi make them but are supa expensive.

    That looks really good! Nice work!

    (And well worth £28 if you consider the time that goes into design and development instead of just cost of materials.)

    FOR SALE: Eibach Sportline Springs from B5 A4. £50 - PM for details.

    Thanks.
    To add to the above, the acrylic wasn't cheap for me to buy in and I'm not exactly using a hacksaw and a stanley knife to make these.
    They don't take 5 mins to make.
