    No idea about having it in an Audi.
    Had it in a Skoda Fabia, useful in this sort of weather.

    A good starting point; presumably the air-con system would be very similar?

    Just had a look at Elsawin - no blanked off vent for glove box! :(

    I believe so. I guess the internals would be identical?
    Someone like NHN might know.

    Iv seen a couple of the older Audi RS4s that actually had a fridge built into the glovebox. Admittedly you could only fit about 2 cans of coke in there but it was awesome!

    A lot of the VDubs have the air con coolers though.

    It'd be handy in this weather - stick your head in it if you get too hot :scared2:

    It was **** in the B6/7, I had it in my S4 & it was useless, didn't get cold enough tbh on most journeys if at all & of course needed aircon on low all the time, it was another glovebox with a fridge insert part, all it had was a hole in the side of glovebox with a link tube to the heater system, as per web link above.

    Best option for chilled stuff in the car is the 12v cooler box for boot etc.

    I wouldn't suggest anyone retrofits it in any car intended for.
