Thread: Sunglass holder

  1. #1

    Default Sunglass holder

    Hi all

    My previous car had a sunglass holder built in to the roof. I donít tend to carry glasses with me so this was where they permanently lived when I was not driving.

    Since getting my Q5 I am always shifting my sunglasses to different locations in the car. Eg I tend to use the cup holders but then I get a coffee etc.

    I was wondering what others do? Of cause some will respond with wear them but I thought driving glasses were common for sight correction as well.

    Another option I see is swapping out the grab handle on the side of the roof and replacing it with a sunglass holder box, might be worth looking into it.

    Mine are just in a case that I have in the drivers door pocket. Trouble with three cars is which one I leave them in

    What Chenga said. Here's a youtube:

    My B5 has one from the earlier series of the new Beetle (trapezoidal). I think the B6 (rectangular) can use one from a Mk5 Golf. So likewise, you'll probably find something for the Q5 from a newer model from the VW side of the family.
