    Any way of getting one to fit where the jesus handle is on the audi?

    had one from a mk4 golf in the leon but the handles were different.

    the grab handle above the door :icon_thumright:

    the one fitted in my A3 8L came from a VW passat , when i asked at Audi they didn't have a clue never seen one the parts man told me , colour match is not great but does the job of holding the sunnies

    there are two types with different hole centres i think

    Hi guys,

    I only joined the forum today, so this is my first post lol.

    I am also interested in fitting the sunglasses holder in place of the jesus handle.
    I found an article on an American Audi site, i'm not sure if i'm allowed to post the link on here, so i will just copy and paste the info.


    [FONT=verdana, arial, geneva]A4 Sunglasses Holder from the New Beetle[/FONT] [FONT=verdana, arial, geneva]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=arial, geneva] The VW New Beetle has a handy sunglass holder that goes in place of the driver's grab handle that can be installed in the A4s. This part can be installed in the A4 in place of the grab handle as well and will match the interior perfectly. Though the grab handles are a very important feature to have in your A4 given the great speed at which A4 owners are able to take curves, there is no need for driver's grab handle since the driver's hands will be busy with the steering wheel. The part is dampened so that when you pull it open and let go, it closes slowly and smoothly.

    The grab handle is held in place by 2 screws; in earlier years they were phillips screws, in later years they were torx screws. Installation just involves removing the 2 screws and mounting the sunglass holder in place of the grab handle. For level of skill needed to perform this modification, this is a 0.05 out of 10.

    I have successfully performed this upgrade on my '97 & '00 A4, so it should apply to all years. Cost is under $20, and can be ordered through your local Audi dealer, or discounted through Clair Parts Express.

    Cost: ~ $18.00

    the beetle handle wont fit as its aimed at the older b5, One of my friends says the new exeo seat has one which could be good.

    but i have a black headlining so i think this is going to fail.

    How about in the Skoda range, my mates old VRS used to have black rear view mirror and sun visors, exactly same as Golf mk4 but black, used to go for more than dealer prices on eBay! So maybe something in the Skoda range has a black glasses holder.
