    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...
    [​IMG]

    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..

    [​IMG]
    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.) :asskicking:

    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.

    Hi I have just messages Kris but he does not seem to have been on the forum for a while, does anyone know if the rear cup holder is still available?

    Thanks

    Not seen him about for a while, to be honest I thought there would have been more people wanting these, I guess for around £20 they would have sold well, I indeed put it to my daughter if she wanted one but she uses the arm rest for what it was intended for. The OEM design has two that slide out from the front of the armrest.

    You will need to change the complete armrest, I have never found one that would match my leather though.
