    I like something rocky or dancey, which promotes listening LOUD and also high speed driving!!

    I've got a mix on the stick. Quite like a bit of dire straits or female vocal. Early morning is usually jazz

So I think if enough people still wanted a cd player they would provide them. But I don't think anyone under the age of 35 would care. Under 25 they won't even know what it is.
    Still plenty of drivers over the age of 35 though.

    Agree that cup holders are a handy thing - If I were in charge of designing car interiors, I would certainly stop having them fitted with players that use the 'slot' type loaders and use conventional loading trays as used in domestic players. These could double as cup holders, and you'd be the envy of all your fellow pensioner drivers.

    My van has four cup holders, a folding tray to put your butties on or a small jigsaw puzzle (no more than 30 pieces), two bins which are large enough for a flask or 70cl bottle of spirits, and still has space for a CD player. Although the music can be a bit of a distraction when you're pissed and trying to complete a jigsaw.

    Visited a cousin of mine yesterday, and he's got a brand new car. Looks like a Jaguar - it's got leather seats, it's got a CD player, player, player, player!

    I'm part of the modern trend for far Too Many Take Away meals, so when it comes to cars a Cup Holder is critical, my Travel Flask Cup teeters around worryingly when placed on the Cup Holder when driving.
    I can see the Travel Flask being a vital accessory to take to any future car viewings, if it don't fit it's going to be deal breaker.
    But what the UK Auntomotive Industry really needs today, is a option to have a Dashboard Glove Compartment turned into a Kebab Warmer.
    Only Joking.
    As for CD's a car feels a lonely place without a few CD's stashed in the door panels and centre consul storage box.

    My 2018 Ford Kuga has USB, Bluetooth and a CD Player but strangely no Aux In.

    I take the Micro SD Card out of my Fiio M9 DAP and put it into a Kingston SD Card to USB adapter - when I want to listen to my Flacs.

    According to theregister.co.uk CD has been on the decline since 2000? I reckon these people make it up to point young'uns to new tech
