Where do you put your owners manual?

it doesn't quite fit in the glove compartment. does it have an intended spot? i

placed mine in the trunk on top of the "tool kit" area. i know silly question but

my last car had a little slot for it in the glove.

right hand side of the trunk, there is a plastic place, small one is for spare oil the big one is for owners manual (mine doesnt fit perfectly but still avoids it flying around in the trunk.

My owner doesn't have a manual.

I put my manual there as well but the road atlas goes under the trunk mat...

In a cabinet in my garage.

Mine is in the glove compartment.

Don't know if you guys have the same thing but behind the rear seat armrest is a place exactly right for the case that holds all the manuals. (UK spec cars).

pet peeve of this car is no specific place for a manual....and don't tell me the trunk. because when i want to look up something i'm never lying in the trunk, i'm sitting in the drivers seat.

my old rs4 had a specific little hide-away spot that no-one could find - made for the manual or other little goodies you wanted to keep hidden.

why it doesn't fit properly into the glovebox is a mystery

There's a real why BMW calls that little slot in the dash a "glovebox".

It's because you can fit exactly one glove and no more in that tiny slot.

I think the mystery is why it's so damned small. Maybe it's because the cupholders are taking up space above it.

Yet another thing that the contributes to the car's character I guess.

I didn't buy it for the glove box space! I think the Honda Element has a huge glovebox....

And at least I can keep a small drink cold in the center section so that I can then place it in the cupholder and have my passenger spill it all over the car when she hits it with her knee getting out of the car.
