What do you keep in the Side Compartment of the door.

I was wondering as to what the members of this board keep in the side compartment of the door, I have attached velcro and it hold my pistol or my key when needed.

In the driver's door pocket: sunglasses, wallet and the little red clip for the alarm system. Nothing in the passenger side pocket.

I keep my wallet there while I go into the gym! It's basically hidden Unless you have a Boxster you wouldn’t know its there. Heck, when I bought mine I didn’t even see it until after a couple weeks!

Tissues, Wheel Lock, Tire Pressure Gage, Insurance/registration, and EZ Pass.

Sometimes I find candy wrappers and torn mail that my gf hides in the passenger side.

Remote garage door opener (wanted to find a way to use buttons on my dash but could not find the proper "rocker switches" that matched the console). Also, sunglasses, t-shirt for spills.

On the far side, mine answer is like @Heiko's response….empty but (Caution wife may change contens without given notice).

Not that you would ever consider transporting a restricted firearm (directly to and from the approved range of course) without it being unloaded, in a locked case, and accompanied by a valid Authorization to Transport.

I keep my pistol there while I'm at work or going into somewhere that I can't take it. Passenger side has all of my wife's stuff to keep her hair in place because the top doesn't go up unless it's raining!

+1 to all you guys who carry guns.

Since I track my car a lot, there isn't anything in either side compartment.
