    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So there have been issues of B5 cup holders being stuck in the dashboard, but my issue is that it doesn't stay latched in the dashboard, or in simple terms, it doesn't close.

    Anyone want this? The bulk of the cost is in the shipping as this needs a bigger box. I want it to go to a home where it'll be appreciated, rather than a landfill. It's an upgrade if you don't have the black color and if you don't have a cubby under your steering wheel currently. Pickup for...
