Default Just me or is the sunglasses holder too small?

Seems tiny when comparing to others I've had in other vehicles. I have a standard pair of Oakley shades and I couldn't even get the compartment to close. Perhaps I need more practice?!?

It is not you. It is too small to be useful.

Yes, it's absolutely too small. I have two pairs of Smith sunglasses and neither one comes close to fitting in there.

I had exactly the same feeling with my newbie S4. I thought "ahh great, finally a sunglasses holder" (old A4 did not have one). Tried my Serengeti's and it wasn't even close to a mind bending spacial test....it was never going to work from the moment they designed that enclosure.

Yep, neither my wife nor I can fit our shades in there.

I guess I'm one of the few that actually use it. My Ray-Bans fit just fine, with room to spare.

I am also one of the few that have no problem with the holder. MY REVO glasses fit easily. Maybe they've cut back on the size since 2012?

My Ray Bans don't fit.

Took me a while to figure out how to twist my sunglasses to fit in there.

It is too small, some glasses fit, others don't. I have two under front seat storage compartments for sale, for electric S4 seats. OEMm still in plastic wrapper. Pm me if interested.

In an odd twist of events, I drove home yesterday in a new 2014 S4. I had posted the day before about how I had no problem with the sunglass holder in my 2012 S4. One of the first things I did when arriving home was to put my sunglasses in the holder. They are definitely smaller. Had to do some fancy manipulation to get them in there, but they did eventually go in and I was able to close the lid without breaking them.

The only thing I can fit in there is a sunglass cleaning cloth.

I use the the "cupped" thing on the door of the glovebox to store my Ray Bans

I keep my sunglasses case there too. Sometimes the case rattles when I'm playing music with deep bass notes.
