I keep a tire pressure gauge in the clip and my AAA card in the slot. The owner's manual slot is slightly big. Sometimes when I open the glove box my owner's manual isn't in the slot anymore. Time to slow down around the turns?

Got the same problem with the top slot and was wondering if there was not another function.

on another note, the amount of stuff you can put in there is amazing.

I use it for napkins. never used to carry them in my car but they come in handy with the Focus. I love the fact that the front cupholders in my SEL have a rubber pad on the bottom, it's easy to pull out and wipe down with a napkin.

Also, the glovebox isn't as large or accessible as the Mazdaspeed 3 I had previously but I'm still glad to have the whole back section as most cars do not.

I bought myself a zippered bank bag (at Wal Mart, school supply section) to put the owners manual, and other papers in. It fits snug.

The slot is for the power tuner card. This card is inserted into the slot and increases horsepower and remaps the pc to run on the track. It's for use on racetracks only. The "pen holder" is for a tungsten rod, when inserted adds 150% better fuel economy. It remaps the pc and retunes the tranny for better fuel economy. Highest fuel economy recorded was around 58MPG!!!!!
Too bad these are European only options.

The slot works perfectly for holding your registration and insurance cards.
