yer this cup holder situation has got out of hand now.
dont the mcdonalds cardboard trays work???
oh right lol.
its handy for me... i like to have my coffee in my flask on the way to work (1 hour drive) or keep a small bottle of water in the car but i currently have to put it in the drivers side door pocket which rattles like a B*tch!
at least with the US console i can maybe put some felt liner at the bottom to stop the rattle
dont start with Mcds... have you ever tried to put a mcds coke cup into the cup holder and get it out properly. or even put the armrest down with out bending and breaking the straw? trust me bro its annoying!
haha your starting to sound like me.
its your rattle OCD that im catching onto!
i'm too young to need an arm rest so i'd be fine ;-)
Or you leave it in there over night and the drink leaks out the bottom and every thing gets sticky.
I only got 1 cup holder and its above the stereo and HVAC, stupid bloody place for it.
If you're adding power sockets, don't forget the 240v and the 5.2v USB socket.
Part number for the bit you are looking for is 8P0-863-387-A - 6PS it costs around £25
Am i right in thinking the above is ALL that is required to do this conversion???
and wot is MAL ???
I question this, The person who ordered my car brand new im sorry to say this but you were quite tight LOL. Why order leathers, s line pack, auto lights and all that other stuff and scrimp on the armrest! Tight bugger.
My situation wasn't as bad as my mates R32 he had leathers etc, He HAD the armrest but the person who ordered his car brand new was so tight he got a cloth lid....Pitiful
Back to this console situation Khufu you need a armrest and ash you need to stop drinking in the car bro.
it came off a german site so probably not translated properly.
look at the link on the first post you lazy bugger!
I did, honestly, its just that the part list with prices had multiples for cigarette lighter, and cup holder n stuff,
i think this is a great solution for my very annoying drinks holder,
this was at my time of purchase the only downside to my car,not my only down side now,
reminds me of my old mkv golf
there are 2 cig lighters as the us console has 2 spaces, but they don't seem to be the same as the one in our current console, hence the need to buy 2 new ones.
im also guessing that the main console has the 'cut out' for the cup holder and then there is another piece that fits in it to make up the actual cup holder as we see it.
as all parts and prices are listed im sure it is something that can be bought slowly for anyone that doesn't want to feel the spend of almost £200 just on plastics.
My cars a manual, my left hand is top busy to rest LOL
I really the look of this... I would much prefer the 12v in the current cupholder location as well.
I'd lose that storage slot though, which is perfect for my pack of Wrigleys Extra
put the chewing gum in the ash tray cubby or even the arm rest?
lol arm rest is for sunglasses and phone Ash! get with it!
no i have a holder for phone and sunglasses sit on my ash tray!
you didnt take that pic just for me did you? haha.
im lucky that the previous owner of my car installed bluetooth, so i could leave my phone in my coat pocket in the boot if i wanted to, and still take calls
i just need someone to call me now...
i too have bluetooth, but that holder charges my iphone and puts it in perfect visibility for my Tomtom app.
took the pics last night after i fitted my new MK2 TT bits :icon_thumright:
Lol at all of you guys 'essential travel accessories' - chewing gum, sun glasses and fruit gums
At least the second cup holder looks bigger than on the UK version - all I've managed to fit in that is an Innocent Smoothie bottle!!?
redbull fits in there
i was just about to say that
ive never had tht problem with my cup holder not fitting drinks containers, as i just fill it with squash and use a very long straw
I'm liking this idea I'm going or the us look with my car so could work really well
I would Like to see somebody on asn do this.......As I'll be interested to do it....

awesome mate your a legend
I wonder who will be first up on this mod can't wait to see a write up for it really considering it.
I am all for being the guinea pig but it will have to wait another month or so as I have just booked my skiing trip
I'm putting some serious thought into it but can't do it for a little while
I'm feeling this one, I may have to get involved
Group buy via Stoke or TPS to help lower the price?
I'm up for that
Your cars a work of art, I wouldnt have imagined you would ever let food or drink in your car :thumbsup:
Its not a painting Plus its Hayleys as well, but if there are 2 HUGE cup holders she may start bringing stuff in for the sake of it
£200 to move your cupholders two inches forward and your cigarette lighter two inches backwards??? You lot are out of your minds!
Pay me £100 and I'll retrofit you a cupholder and FOUR 12v sockets, located wherever you want them.....
Put some Audi cups in there and tell her she can't remove them.
If you think the person who spec'd your car is tight then you need to see my car's spec!
I need Bob Geldof, Lenny Henry, Band Aid, and the full comic relief crew to help out with the povery that is taking place inside my car.
Here is my spec list:
End of spec list.
I'm thinking of having my doors wired up to my concert stereo so that when they are opened this tune blares out of my tinny standard speakers...
