    2011 - 2008 boot difference ??

    I have a 2011 S line A3 diesel black edition and my partner has a 2008 1.4 tfsi Se A3 .
    We were looking in the boots at weekend and noticed the boot on mine is much deeper than the petrol one.
    I looked inside the cover and the 1.4 seems to have a 'bread basket' sort of thingy which looks like it can be turned upside down for storage etc.....is this what its for as I'm curious to why there is the difference.
    My previous A3 (2006) had a normal depth boot.
    Thanks for any clarification on this

    Long shot , is the spare wheel on the later models underneath the car and not in the boot?
    Some people deserve to have eggs thrown at them....brick shaped eggs...made out of brick.

    The boot lid had a facelift at one stage, there is a thread about it.
