Yeah I saw this earlier in another thread and was wondering what uses it really has. Who need sticky notes, a pen and credit card slots in their car?

Yeah, me. I felt like spending some $$s one day and ordered it. The pen is small and makes my chicken scratch handwriting even worse, but otherwise is pretty nice. It swings out and is held in place with a magnet which works very well. I don't use the CC holder, but I do like having a pen and pad handy, especially the pad. The sticky notes don't really stick anywhere on my car though, which is fine with me. I guess I could have just bought a pack of Post-It notes and put them in the ashtray and keep a pen in the console, but I thought this was pretty cool.

Plus, it's highly unlikely that this "mod" will ever affect your warranty.

If you decide to get one, your car will then be exactly like mine. Same exact colors and options as mine.:w00t:

Worthless.

Show me a decent coin holder and I'll buy it.

Yes! I really miss the coin holder in my E36 M3.

Worth It

I got one and I think its worth it. I keep my business cards in there and I'm always getting calls in the car. In this convetible there are not many places to put little pieces of paper, so its nice to be able to secure them easily.

Mine works well as a trash can... gas receipts, gum wrappers, and parking stickers go in there and then get thrown out every week when I wash the car.

Just ordered one

I liked the concept and ordered yesterday. I won't be using the CC holder for CC's, but for things like my Costco card, Petco card, etc. Basically any card I'd only be using when out and about. BTW, I don't carry a wallet, just the essentials - ID, CC, ATM card, and cash.

The pen and pad I know I'll use as well. Like when I witness a hit and run and need to write down the a**hole's plate number. No joke, I've witnessed three of these in the past 2 years. Two of them were parking lot incidents.

I have one and a couple of people who have seen it also wanted to get one. It makes better use of wasted space. The cup holder partially hidden under the armrest is my change holder.


The only problem is finding that size Post-IT notes is a real PITA.

I got one. Easy to swap out from the old one.

I don't need the pen so much, but the slot for the CC works great to hold my parking card. I bent it once with the original insert.

Business cards in the lower slot.

Hi! I'm new to the forum and just ordered one, too, for my three-week-old car. I've been carrying a pen and a post-it pad around in my glove compartment, and I figured it might free up a little space in there. Since I'm not a smoker, the only thing I was using the ashtray for was to hold my chapstick (a must-have when you're a female driving a convertible!)
