    I'm talking about the little storage space near the flip up cigarette lighter.

    I know I got a B5 but you B6ers have the same little storage space as us and I was trying think of what to use it for and what options or ideas Audi had for it.

    I've found a picture of a B5 facelift with a remote control unit and I've seen some B6s with a start button.
    The remote is no good if you don't have the Audi stereo and start button is not an option for everyone.

    I've asked the B5ers and thought I'd ask you guys as well.
    Did the B6s have any more options for this space?

    And the A3s looking at their dash.

    What else can go there?

    Sorry slightly off topic, but I was toying with the idea of fitting an rs4 starter button, how hard are they to fit? I've done it before but in a Jap car where the wiring is far more simple than our audi's!

    There is some right ups on the net.
    It seems easy but you still need to put the key in the ignition and turn it.

    Yeah I thought that would be the case, do you still have to use the key in the ignition on the rs4 anyway? But just to position 3 on ignition? I'll have to do a google search on the subject.

    Oh, and I forgot to say, I use that mini storage place to put my chewing gum packet, that's about all it's big enough for!

    It's a tiny stupid space.
    Trying to find something useful to put it.

    Not sure about the RS4.
    But yeah, key in the ignition turn like you would to start and press the button to start the car.

    That's how I did it in my BMW.

    I put my wallet or phone in there but my phone always falls out of it if I take a sharp left or right...also a neat place to store change that falls out of my pocket into my chair!

    I do agree it is a bit of a pointless thought of storage space really.

    yes the rs4 still needs key in igg
    its easy to fit but the how to's are for the a3 and that is very easy
    best thing to do is but a start button with wireing and relay use the rs4 button
    or wire it up to a relay of your own
