Rear Arm Rest Cup Holder

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...


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..


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.

It's all about the V8.
Just ordered one. Looks good and should match my carbon interior trim.

i have no idea, however a friend had a B6 and says most items are identical, but no help here unfortunately

WOLF - I Made them from 4mm acrylic.

Here's the front one finished. This one was a right pain to get right!!
But it fits perfect! Well happy with it.


No more arguing with the misses to who's gonna use the dash cup holder :)

Will design for mods
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.

Can these slide out ones be retrofitted? I'm just reading a forum elsewhere someone fitting these 2 an A6 C6.

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