    Yeah that glove box one is a joke. I have the armrest insert but with a drink in it its a task changing gear. Your elbow has to be touching the roof lining lol. There are a few on ebay... At least 2 different part numbers (only the last character is different,,, not sure what the last character represents) i'll see if the one iv got is any good and let you know.

    It does seem like its not a perfect fit. The leon cup holder has a flat edge on the right hand side where the audi switch is curved. If it is possable. That edge will need bodging some how.
    Iv relocated before actually. In my a3. Theres a good place underneath the glove box, at the very right hand side in the shelf.

    I think I will wait and see how this turns out....I've managed 4+ years without one....just always wished it came as standard!

    The glove box lid is an absolute joke...I'm sure the Audi designers had a right giggle when they made that for us!

    I'll carry on wedging my McDs drinks between the center console section and the seat bolster when it's fully extended out :) lol

    Or get my passenger to hold it for me!

    Yeah if you fully extended the bolster bit out....then have the seat more forward than you're probably used to - a McDs cup should fit in the little gap snuggly :) just keep an eye out when going over large bumps!

    I have my passenger seat set up like that all the time to hold them- and when a passenger gets in I get them to hold my drink as chances are they will move the seat further back so the drink wouldn't be as secure.

    Im sort of in your boat dani. My esp can go... Im hoping the passenger heated seat switch will go and sit next to the drivers one on the right. Id have the cup holder to the left and just relocate the rear screen switch..

    Id put the remaining rear screen heater on a smaller switch if i had the know how... Would make relocating a lot easier. I done it years ago on an a3 to make way for gauges. The best place i could find for a switch that size was under the glove box.

    Thats the toledo ad. It looks rounded both ends in the pic here, but its not..
    Id already bought the leon one.
    Turned out ok though. The new one has smoother runners. Feels like theres road kill in the first one i got.

    Early in the week i think mate. I work nights over the weekend.
    Iv been thinking about creating an edge with some milliput putty then dremmel it nice and neat to fit but it'll need painting then and will look odd....
    Iv just had a brain wave though. Its genius...

    Its a lot of messing... Cutting, filing, araldite :)
    I was thinking. Remove the face of the seat cup holder. Fabricate two audi blanks together and put in place of the seat face. Wont look out of place. Should have equal amount of wear as the rest of the dash.

    I had a look this morning mate. Its not going to be easy.
    For one, the h/seat switches are bigger than the other two. Will need to cut away at the cage if we want them to sit together. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1368400627.740731.jpg
    And two, the divider separating the space we need for the cup holder goes all the way to the back of the cage. that will need cutting out... Looks like its going to need some bodging to secure in place ImageUploadedByTapatalk1368400895.356950.jpg
    Did i say bodging... I meant improvisation :)
