Good Morning,
Has anyone come up with a good place to store CD's? Our Q3 is basically my wife's car and yesterday she mentioned that CD's do not fit in the center counsel (I was suprised/disappointed when I heard that)... I know the the second obvious choice would be the glove box but I was hoping for something a little more accessable from the drivers seat. I know your probably thinking MP3 SD card but hey I'm getting old and stuck in my ways and I still like CD's (yup still listen to Vinyl too) and are hoping that some of you can help me out with some good ideas!!!

Thanks in advanvce!!!:)

Really?

What's in your centre console?

I fit them in mine (I even have the bluetooth low phone cradle in there)

(Not sure I'd bother with "Bluetooth Low" again).

(There is also a Chromecast+HMDI>AV convertor in there under the cradle)

Do you have the jukebox function? I don't know if that is standard or what.. I think my wife saved one CD in there and it worked but I don't know a ton about its functionality when it comes to playback...

I have the jukebox on my A5 but could never get it to copy CD's so never used it...

Thanks!!!

I took my "car favorite" CDs and ripped them to the jukebox, it works great and holds tons of music, it would be a lot of work to actually fill that thing up. I find comfort knowing Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac are always available.

What I do most though is stream from my phone where I can have whatever my mood dictates. The Audi app is kind of interesting if you are in the mood for a global experience. I also use Downcast and the app from my favorite local radio station from my phone. I used HD radio the other day for the first time. I rarely use Sirius.

I've never had a car with so many ways to get sound to the speakers. Lots of options.

My BMW 330 convertible has very limited cabin storage space. The zippered case in which I keep my CDs containing MP3 music files and my regular audio CDs is not tiny.
So, I put my CD case in the pocket behind the front passenger seat. It is very easy to get to for the few times that I actually need it and it stays put.

Wow - CDs - I ripped about 900 or so back in 2007 and every once in awhile since, but don't carry them anywhere anymore - they're like 8-tracks to me - shoot, now I just listen to my exhaust or use playlists on my iPhone when driving ...

CocoPops - Do you use Chromecast with your MMI? If so, what parts are needed?
Some YouTube videos show MMI Cable (RCA) and a HDMI / RCA converter. I assume the Chromecast to the Converter, and a dual miniUSB cable for powering the converter and Chromecast. Does this setup work? (Don't really care about VIM since I'm thinking of only using while parked)

Speaking of storage I found a tray that fits the console so you don't have to throw everything in it willy nilly. Very inexpensive too. PM me if you want the info
