2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Key Card Slot
January 30, 2015
I'm certain that if this 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI were my personal car, this slot would permanently house my key card that actuates the office building's parking arm. It's snug-fitting and quite deep, nearly enveloping the entire card, so that there's not a chance of the card popping out or getting in the way. I'm guessing those other two slots are for fitty-cent worth of quarters. Right?
Normally, my parking-garage key card resides in my brief case that I carry from car to car, but it just happened that I had the GTI for a couple days in a row and so I tried out the slot. I know it doesn't hide the car completely from prying eyes, and I don't know why, but it seems cooler and more secure than those flimsy tabs we often find on the backside of sun visors.
