2009 Audi S5: Warning - Cupholders

July 27, 2009

Anyone know what this means and why it's on the cupholders? It's faint but when you're sitting on the passenger side, you can't miss it.

I'm taking it to mean "Refer to owner's manual." So I did just in case there's some unknown scary deal with the cupholders I need to be aware of.

But nope, the only warning to be found on page 87 of the owner's manual was, "Spilled hot liquid can cause an accident and personal injury. Never carry any beverage containers with hot liquids... Use only soft cups in cupholder. Hard cups and glasses can cause injury in an accident. Never use the cupholder or adapter as an ashtray -- risk of fire."

Wow. Is this because of that time that lady sued McDonalds because she spilled her Micky D's hot coffee on herself?
