Where do you put your cell phone when you drive?

May 27

I was driving a new Audi A8 this morning and decided to pair the Bluetooth so I could stream music from my iPhone through the sound system of the car . Afterwords I put the phone down (I hate having my cell phone in my pocket when I drive) and realized that the new A8 really had no perfect spot for my phone. I understand I could put my cell in the drivers door pocket, but that is were I rest my arm or like most people put my phone in the cup holder… but that is were I would like to put my beverage. The new A4 has a beautiful spot in the center console for placing a phone or iPod and I have driven a lot of cars with absolutely no were to put a phone – BMW is terrible! My question is “Where do you put your cell phone when you drive?” Let me know what cars you have had with great spots to put your phone, and were you put your cell phone when you get into your car and go for a drive!!!

I think the cup holder is the most used place to put the cell phone. Another place could be the hollow armrest.

Agreed, the arm rest is a great place but you can’t Tweet or publish Facebook status updates 🙂

I have a b5 a4 so my cupholders wont even hold my phone lol i use the spot between my gearshifter and the cig lighter works perfectly! i can take corners as hard as i want and my phone stays in the same place..most of the time 🙂

I have a B8 A4 and that spot is the best spot I’ve ever used for any vehicle.  Putting it on the seat in between my legs or in tiny cup holders that launch my phone straight for my pedals after corners are unacceptable now.

Sorry not an Audi comment(just love your site). I usually sit my HTC or iPhone in the slot under headunit in my M35, any other phones a bit smaller usually sit in the cupholder then closed. I hate being distracted by phones lighting up to an sms/etc.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
