Thumbs up New ashtray piece for voice cards and notepad

I just put one of these in my E93. This is a simple but cool and very handy new mod. It replaces your ashtray piece which pops right out, but retains the lighter/power outlet and internal lighting. It's called "Pico tray" and comes with 2 sets of voice command cards - one for Nav cars and one for non-Nav cars. It also comes with a small Post-it notepad and a built-in magnetic pen that folds down inside the tray. This thing is so cool, you have to see it. Which is why I posted the pics below. It takes about a minute to install. I got it for $33 at http://www.tecaccessories.com/produc...duct.php?II=18 which I think are the guys who make it.

Nice little accessory, but I'm a little ...could you post pics of the non-nav voice command card... Does it give you instructions on how to talk to yourself when you're alone in your car or suggest topics to discuss when you have a passenger?

Does this do anything for those who don't have ZPP / premium package? Besides hold cards and a small pen? Thanks!

Very cool! Thanks for posting. About 1000% more useful that a stupid ashtray.
Hey, I would have liked it even more if it were a slotted coin holder. Still nowhere to put coins that they don't rattle every once in a while! The little compartment in the door pull-out map pocket is the best I've come up with.

I just ordered one. Just the fact that you can secure the pen in there so it wont roll around and fall out makes it worth it to me.

Hopefully some company would take note and design some kind of coin holder for the 3. Would be much, much more useful for me, but the PicoTray is pretty nice too! Good to go.

I would like to have a sunglass holder simply because I do not use any cards or notes (everything I put into my Blackjack)

To the OP -- great find for some people

It is a magnetic one, so it should not rattle

"We wanted to let you know that the following items from your order have shipped and are on the way to you." Now, that's what i call service.
