Any idea what this is for in the Glovebox?

Post by Yelland » Tue Dec 03, 2019 11:23 am

Perhaps I'm being a bit slow... but does anyone know what this is for in the glovebox?

I thought it was maybe for coins but the slots are the wrong way round and the coins fall out... (and there are coin slots on the glovebox lid anyway)

I keep a couple of pound coins in them for parking if required. They fit in there with no problem!

I think (without looking) that there are also some slots in the lid of the glovebox, plus what looks like a credit card slot. Not sure if the small slots are for coins or SD cards, but I think the card slot is of more use in other European countries and is for ‘toll’ cards which can be read automatically.
