Thumbs up

This probably sounds trivial, but its damned annoying. There appears to be no place to easily (and without rattle) store coins (for parking meters, etc.) in a 2005 530i. Anybody have a suggestion?

And who was the rocket scientist that decided the console needeed a little bitty storage compartment on top of one that has air vents? Try stuffing a CD in there - not! ghead

Thanks,

Bug

i know that on 528i the coin storage is in the right lower corner of the driver's door. there's a small button u can press and the coin holder pops out. maybe it's the same for the 60

Previous 5-Series had a little coin holder built into the driver's door but, for some reason, the E60 lacks this handy feature. I use the ashtray or, otherwise, you could use the upper tray in the console that serves no other purpose (actually it's where you store the BMW phone if you were daft enough to have goten the integrated phone system.

Bottim line: if it has the word holder (coin, cup etc), BMW engineers aren't too good at it.

In front of the gear shift is a small box for cigarette lighter/ash tray...most people stick their coins in the box to the left there if they don't smoke....and close it...if you have enough coins there it shouldn't make any noises...I think.

Otherwise I'd say in the center consol....but it appears as if you already tried that...

I was just in 5 e60s today and yesterday....ranged from 525i, 530i and 545i....they are ALL the same....and I found where it goes...in the center consol.....the inside of the consol is a button....near the knob...press it and then the middle opens up...and then you press another button to open up the change carrier....

Anywho

Quit smoking...Use the ashtray.

As I'm a smoker, this isnt an option. So my coin storage usually consists of lifting up the floormats in the backseat and the drivers seat and picking the change up. Sometimes i even use the cavity underneath the seat, or if i'm really creative. In between the seat and the center console.
