Do you keep your owner's manual in car?

Just curious if people keep their owner's manual in their car/glovebox or trunk?

Glove box. When I kept the one from my e92 in the trunk, it developed a funky smell.

I keep the little case + all books they give you in the front passanger door compartment. I found it doesn't fit well in the glovebox and i would rather store other things in the glovebox (such as a small towel/rag, small umbrella, etc.) that does not look very tidy compared to the little leather case which looks nicer sitting out in the door compartment vs those other things rattling around.

Never moved it from the glove box. One of my buddies saw that it still had the protective plastic over the logo and asked if I had ever used it. I did not and read the PDF instead, lol. I have also used the in-car manual once.

For those of you that keep the binder in the trunk, do you keep it under floor or in net on right side? Other than stowing insurance/registration inside binder with manuals I really don't see the need to keep it in glovebox (doesn't really fit anyway).

I keep mine in the storage compartment below the trunk.

I don't keep anything in the car that I know I'll never use while driving or on the road broken down, i.e. the owner's manual, that stupid half baked tool kit, drink covers, rear floor mats, etc.
