Mystery Adapter....

Here!


Discovered it while doing some work under the center console, It appears to be an adapter to some kind of 'accessory'. Does anyone know what this thing is for?

Oh and a little off topic, but where can I find some decent cupholders, these things suck

I would think the connector is for telephone option or if you dont have electric windows it could be for them.

eBay always have cupholders, but you end up making the shipping companies rich. Like marti5 said try a wrecking yard. are you sure thats not an early ipod adapter?
