    Idea's for the spare DIN

    Im looking to do something with the spare DIN other than the little cubby hole the VX give you.

    I've looked at:
    the Saab and the Toyota cup holders
    A DVD screen
    A custom PSP holder (I dont know how I would do this)
    A custom phone holder (I Dont know how I would do this)
    A blanking plate with a design cut out and lighting behind it.
    Gauge pods

    Any more suggestions, Advise or opinions please....

    cd holders. looks great. either that or the cup holders you mentioned. for former looks factory installed that is why it's my first preference.

    Fit something u actually want and not just some stupid fad like that tacky shitty 70s lookin cup holder that even looks out of place in a Saab.

    Cup holders?? I use the door pockets or the one behind the handbrake
    Coin holders?? I use my pockets or strangely enough wallet...

    Personally I say go for some ICE of some description or something which shows individuality and imagination.

    Just my personal opinion of course

    Well to be honest, I was gonna buy a spare black console from ebay and a din blanking Plate, cut out L88 WAD from the middle of the blanking plate, mesh it, stick a light source behind it, smooth it into the din space on the new console, then spray it.

    Depends what you want you've pretty much covered everything available. But to be honest i think the light box idea would just look cheap.

    Put something you'll find a use for in there, be it guages or a cup holder (which i'll defend to the death - i dont think they look dated!).

    Why not go the whole hog & put a screen into the dash & install a pc?
