Sunglasses.
« on: 28 March 2014, 22:56 »
Has anyone ever found a pair of sunglasses that fit into the holder in the roof?
My Mk5 was the same as well,surely they should be larger,I wonder if they have changed it on the Mk7?
Perhaps the German designers wear really small glasses!
I know its a small detail really,but it would be such a handy feature if it only worked!

RayBan Aviators fit in the overhead cubby (women's ones though).  Rarely use that compartment though as I hate anything rattling  :grin:

I have two pairs of sunglasses in my roof holder. Oakley TwoFace and aviators. No problems at all.
