Sunglass holder

Guys, this is probably a dumb question, but I didn't find a sunglass holder in my car. Does it have it?

Yes, it's called the pocket on the door. Also, there's one to the left of the steering wheel on the dash.

Some of you are referring to 3's, others are talking about 5's. Since this is the F10 5 forum, the one to the left of the steering wheel that we're talking about is the auxiliary "glove box" on the left side of the dash. My previous '08 E90 had a space in the center stack I believe where I kept my glasses.

No, the F10 does not have "a sunglasses holder" per se. You need to use the glove box or left side dashboard storage box.

Wow. I have 3000+ miles on the car and I did not know it had a storage box on the left side of the dash. Now I have to look for it.
