Is this possible?
There was a thread not long ago, can't link as phone is playing up.
You can search this sub forum from the top right, should be able to find it.
If I remember correctly, yes, it's possible to retrofit a cup holder.
I was looking as I want to for a second.
How easy is it to remove the card holder?
It depends, the cup holder is bigger than the card slot so will have to either file the front down or the space on the hazard panel
Mmm doesn't sound promising then
I have just done the double din conversion and my standard cup holder doesnt fit, so im either gonna file it down or just put up with the card holder
My car has no cup holder... Just annoys me more than anything. I don't wanna move the armrest
Cup holders are a bit of an after thought in A3 design it seems. The one by the handbrake is too far back and you catch your elbow on the armrest and don't get me started on the armrest design lol!

What is the thinking behind the card holder?
Its just a waste. Pointless. Do they expect me to keep my credit card there? Very peculiar.
It will never fit! Give it to me and be happy with your card holder
I use it to put my pack of airwaves in, not good for much else
