Ashtray alternative option? F06

Been wondering if there was a non-smokers ashtray alternative and if so what does that look like and what part numbers would that be?

Anyone?

No alternative from the factory, but I've researched this and I believe the six-speed manual transmission version of the center console has a cup holder and that should be a direct fit into the ash tray slot.

I guess all we need is that single cup holder part # and perhaps any associated parts to see if that would in effect work as a swap in replacement... I'm guessing there is a trim associated which may not support the non manual layout of that section...

My ash try hides the face of my radar detector and the lcd for the detector is hidden inside my mirror. I can turn the display on and see thtough the mirror face perfectly or turn it off for a fully stealth config.

I might take the jump as we usually have 4 on regular road trips and cup holders are always used lmao! An extra one is ideal!

That's very cool! Did you just come up with this setup or was it from a previous setup documented somewhere? Looks very well hidden!

I have installed a tV behind a mirror before in my house but this is the mad genius of other folks. there is some creativity here with mounting the controls in a plate that fits in the ash tray along with the sepertion of the LED.
