I broke my coin holder in the center console a couple of days ago and my local Nissan dealership wants to charge me $97 for it. Needless to say, I'm not going to pay for it.

Anyone know where I can get one? I found this ashtray at courtesyparts.com Ashtray , but I'm looking for the coin holder.

We have an ashtray? I thought that was the coin holder...

:lol: That rectangular piece is the coin holder. I think the round piece goes in the pop-out cup holder. Strange...

I think that ashtray is optional... I'm not really sure. Maybe it is the coin tray :dunno:

I might end up doing that. I just figured the coin holder would be a little nicer.

The pop out cup holder is flimsy as ****, and expensive when it breaks too. I'm always afraid it's going to fall and Kendall's always putting like 32oz taco bell cups in it. :headshake:

I hardly use the cup holder. The ones below my elbow are better suited for that. The ashtray is a better coin holder anyway.

I'd say that the cup holder is made like a cheap toy, but there are cheap toys produced that are made better and more durable. So, I guess one could surmise that the cup holder is basically junk! AND it is. I won't even attempt use it. Regarding the coin holder, while that item would never win any prizes for its design - how does one end up breaking that thing?

What that car desperately needs is a REAL, in the front (passenger side) as is inclusive with 90% of every vehicle manufactured, GLOVE BOX! Yeah there’s storage in the back, but who likes putting every little thing back there? It’s always a drag when you need to quickly retrieve it.

I have taken that front dash panel off in the past. Guess what? There's plenty of room for that amenity to exist. The passenger airbag is located at the top of the dash. BUT, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Nissan must have saved plenty of $$$ on that big ticket item, right? YIKES!!!!

Whew, ……………I just had to get that one out. Thanks.
:doh:

Well, I believe the ashtray has a little light in it. So it would be kind of like putting some light on your subject.
Now that would be pretty cool. (just in case he chose to get it all on video - of course)

Really? I've never seen a light in it unless you're talking about removing it from the console. I know the Z32 had a light...

Yeah, the harness that runs near that location can provide that cute little addition for the ash tray. Maybe I'll find that info for you if you'd like.
BUT- I STILL want a front glove box. C'monnnnnnnnn Carlos!!!!
