The glove box NEEDS a light and for the kind of money people are paying for these cars it should have a light.

A small flash light is the best kind of light you can have in any car because you can direct it wherever you want. I usually carry one around all the time anyway.

I would like to see some pictures of what everyone is putting in those slots in the back. I can't seem to find anything that actually fits in there. The pen holder works which is nice.

First thought to me is that business cards in that slot would get crushed, but not sure how deep it is... I'll try it later.
The clip is about the right size to hold a small flashlight as well. It won't take my larger pen-light but I think a Mag-Lite AA will fit.

Its not hidden, just a shelf/slot on the roof designed for the owner's manual.

I appreciate the thought they put into this, but for once they've don'e something that doesen't seem practical. Just too far to reach for a pen.

I put all my junk in the glove box in a travel organizer bag. Then when I need to get something out, I grab the bag, unzip and get it. No more leaning over looking for things while the rest of the stuff falls out.

You'll be surprised how nice it works the first time you use it sitting in the drivers seat.

Wait! My glovebox doesn't look like that. I guess I'll chalk this up to another difference between the trims.
