Sunglasses holder

Is there a sunglasses holder to replace the drivers grab handle like in the Mk4 Golf?

If not has anyone tried fitting one from a Mk4?

I used to have one in my golf too and I miss it, although the audi does have more cubby holes anyway. I looked on eBay but nothing came up for the a4 so maybe there isn't one.

How does it work.. ? That last link, where is the room for my massive Oakley Batwolf?
But I also like this idea ..

So what's the deal bez? Do you just unscrew the grab handle and this fits straight on in place of it?

Wonder if the wifes big stoopid sunglasses will even fit....


EDIT: Sorry, just answered my own question by reading one of the ads. Cheers :)

They're really handy, and it stops any stereo rattles from the case being in the door.

You can get genuine Vauxhall versions for about £7 if I recall and they also fit with minor mods to the back clip.

No that's the right one for the mk4 mate. I guess this answers my question then, they don't fit :(

Luckily I've just fitted some under seat storage bins, so it's not a cause for concern for me as my glasses are in there now.

If you look at the second picture you can see there isn't that much room for maneuver really

I purchased the grab handle type for my Passat years ago, I now have it fitted in my S4, so you can get them.

I got one of those a few years ago and it definitely didn't fit my B7 - so I sold it at the Beaulieu Autojumble last year.

Wow I really like that, guessing yours were from another car? Anyone know where these can be had from or if any other models boxes will fit.

Well you learn something new every day.... I thought those bins were standard... got them both sides on my Avant.... I quite fancy a couple of glasses holders though if we can find a link to the correct one... the ones in the first pictures look totally different to the one thats pictured fitted....... edit..... just checked back and that ones a Volvo one.... the Volvo one does look better

These are the A4 ones that Sean (sabaxter) was selling.

I did a write up on fitting them which I'll post up if anyone wants it?

They came as part of the storage pack. I think it included under seat bins, center armrest, rear cup holders and cargo net. All standard according to my S4 brochure.
