    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.
