I have an SEL without a sunglasses holder...or don't know how to open it. My 2016 eGolf has a sunglass holder (without sunroof), though.

Ha! I'm totally with you on this. I grew up in Edmonton. Been driving in winter conditions for 40+ years and the only thing the stupid "black ice" warning does is annoy the hell out of me. Much safer to turn on "driver awareness" every time you get behind the wheel. If you need an idiot light to tell you what the road conditions are, should you really be driving?

I'm tired of car manufacturers taking all the common sense and skill out of driving a car and turning it into a bland, personality-less appliance.
What I'd really like today is a brand new 20 year old car.

Luddite rant over.

Guy here said he added one...

My car is not a unicorn, it's got to be an SEL thing. I keep forgetting to take a picture!

I'm with you. I really enjoy driving rwd cars in the winter and if you can find a rwd car now, they have taken the fun out of those as well.
I find myself driving my son's 1994 940 Volvo more and more these days.

My SEL GSW has no sunglass holder overhead either. Kind of annoying to have the stupid help buttons I don't need in place of the sunglass holder we always used for tollbooth money.

My SEL Golf has a sunglass holder. Is it a Golf vs GSW thing?

5G0868837Y20 is for models with NO sunroof.

Has anyone here ordered one for the sunroof equipped model? I haven't searched for the right parts blow up. Maybe it exists out there??

Seems like it. There's a space there, but no door to open to get to it for whatever reasons.

Default Push Button Start

Discovered that if you briefly push down on the start button when the car is off it puts the ignition in ACC mode and you can roll down the windows.
My friend with a 2013 gasser Beetle shared this with me after I was whinging at work about the downside of a pushbutton and wondering what could be done with VagCom.
This after I scoured the manual and it said I had to start the engine to enable the power windows.

I believe the difference is whether you hold the brake pedal down rather than how long you hold the button down.

bizzle is right. Foot on the brake with the start button starts the car.
Foot off the brake with the start button puts in into ACC

Good to know!
I'll try it both ways to check.
Still wonder why it's not in the manual...

It is in mine Keli. page 230 left side "Switching the ignition on and off"

I can see why you missed it.

Silly me. I was looking under Windows, operating.
I keep my manual in the glove box for light reading while waiting for my son to finish his piano lesson.
