    Anyone fitted a DIN slot cup holder?

    Just won a nice DIN sized cup/coin holder out of a SAAB 900. Cost me the princely sum of £18.00 inc delivery. Just wondering if anyone else has fitted one of these or a similar size cup holder and whether there were any problems with fitment etc.

    Looks like this by the way

    Was thinking about depth problems Rob, evidently it's nearly 8" deep and not sure the bottom DIN slot is that deep or whether I'd need to move the CD player down and the cup holder up if you see what I mean.

    The door cup holders are pretty useless IMO, so I thought I'd try something else, the coin holder looks pretty.

    should be fine... there's a fair bit of space back there.

    it may sit on the wiring loom at the back though, not a problem with that

    Wicked idea Ken! It's all about the cup holders. I'm almost tempted to ditch my screen for one! I know which I'd use more!

    Very good idea, not something that ever crossed my mind. What other DIN sized gadgets can people think of?

    Why do so many drivers want to use their car as a canteen?

    Get out of the car and eat/drink in the premises, whatever your style of "premises". That way you can look out of the window and see how much better your Astra looks than the other cars around it!
