Re: am i the only one? (lm2lg)

Yep. I had to buy mine. It came new with a HOLE. Only cost me 50.00 for the cup holder and 45min labor. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (lm2lg)

Mine came on my car. Thank God! As much as I worry about spilling java on the radio, they're so much better than the console cupholders.<p>That is, until I get my mug from Kelly! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: am i the only one? (lm2lg)

yeah, I DEFINITELY have one. I don't even use the console cupholders anymore . . . I removed them and find the storage bin underneath to be very useful. <p>I find the in-dash cupholder to be especially useful in manual vehicles.

I don't have that one. I even talked w/ Volvo of OKC Parts Dept. and they were clueless. So instead of mounting the cupholder there I mounted my remote radar detector dsisplay there. And that worked out quite nicely. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Okay, is there a quick and easy way to get the '05 cupholder installed without removing the entire freakin' dash?<p>-Eric

Re: (phuz)

no cup holder - I use it for a cell phone holder. I have an Ipaq Phone, and it is a great place to mount it. Did it for $3. if anyone wants to see the pics, let me know - I will post them

I got one just to clean up the dash, I found the hole quite out of place. Only took about 10min to change, don't know how that part would be different in an 05.<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=20381" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=20381</A>

Re: am i the only one? (lm2lg)

I've got one, installed it myself in a few minutes, there is an ancient thread here about how to do it<p>had an XC70 loaner recently that just had the hole, and I really missed the dash cupholder--the location of the cupholders in the console is just an awkward reach for me

Re: am i the only one? (vintagemilano)

The 2004 piece is entirely different because the entire upper left corner slips in and out. In the '05, there's a brushed metal surround on the dash so it's a pop-in piece that only replaces the "hole" itself. All of the instructions I've seen are very complicated but I have to believe there's an easier way.<p>-Eric

Re: am i the only one? (Sue Esponte)

I think the one thing our cars lack is storage space, or cubby spots. I use mine for a variety of things from wallet to business cards to receipts, etc. I drove a Dodge Durango the other day and that thing had cubby holes everywhere. I was looking for stuff to store in the storage areas.
