Switch akrapovic

Having received yesterday my wifi akra and not having the ashtray, I seek a convenient functional location and estéthique for l switch wifi.
Dimensions: same as a lit cigar

Akra offers l installation l lights rear cigar, and with the armrest c is really but really not practical! In addition it is not...

Ideas of creation?

On the centre console below the cd/mp3 player it would be..? Knowing that c is empty behind...

Knowing also that a 2 switch will come s Add (kW SDC unit)

Thank s

Sorry i m swiss

- This way I still have to research wrt switch techniques (used by KW) but is is the customizable OEM centre console switch bank:http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...74&hg=61&fg=35

Yep retrofitting either the tray (standard in the US) or the ashtray itself will allow you to fit aftermarket cigarette lighter shaped switches a bit concealed. Especially if you have more of them, and they do not match the OEM interior style, it may look odd if they are in a prominent place such as below the Radio/Airconditioning controls. (The KW DDC one uses a purple light for the sport mode i think !!!!
