Mine worked perfectly all winter long.
Agreed! The storage is a little stingy. I liked the under the steering column slot for the manual and full trays under the seats of my '06 A4. But... never needed a cooled glove box anyway and if the time happens well, toss it on the back seat.Today was warm enough to fire up the AC. The glovebox cooled nicely. I can see it cooling a pop or three. But where do I keep the manual??
