    Hi folks

    Anyone know anything about the above?

    Since I need to keep spot 1 and 2

    [​IMG]

    In the boot I need a guard.

    Spin140 is selling his, however I was told by the dealers before that they will not fit a quattro the reason been the Q boot is shallower but neither of us can understand this since the guard fits across the back of the seats.

    So anyone any idea? Anyone got one fitted to a Q?

    Cheers!

    Aren't they all covered in?

    I thought the dog guard went accross the rear where the parcel shelf goes but theres legs that drop down to the boot floor.

    But i could be wrong on both counts.

    Was after one too. For Hols in a couple of weeks. Need to keep Dogs in car over night - Why are we camping again? So don't want them all over the leather.

    Probably gonna go for a universal mesh guard £30 halfords. Or find on e-bay.

    Audi one looks nice and fits on the seat clips apparently. However they do have a guard that protects the seat back aswell and I am not sure how deep that is. If the Quattros boot is shallower it may not fit.

    Anyone know?

    Guard does go across the rear of the seat but no feet just utilises usual seat locking mechanism, can also leave parcel shelf in place when used. (Obviously not when the dogs are in the car!!)

    Pretty sure it is the same dog guard for both 3 & 5 doors, worth getting, safer for you guys and the little pup in event of an accident plus keeps your car nice n' clean. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

    D3fy,

    Watchout as I ordered one for my old 1.8TQ and it didn't fit. They are not designed for Quattro cars with the shallower boot. Argos do an adjustable one that does the job here

    Edit: Just read above and it appears they fit the 8P model!

    Not that it needs two people to say the same but, I have just fitted the Audi £80 dog guard (Not Quattro) to my A3 Quattro and it fits perfect, wonder why they say it does not fit?

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but could you tell me if the dog guard sits below the boot floor on the quattro and is it harder to lock the seats in position. It seems on the pics that it does sit below the boot?

    It fits directly behind the seats, it make no differance to locking the seats in-place and is slightly lower than the boot floor.

    It fits perfectly and have no idea why they say not quattro? I wil post up a few more pics when I get a chance.

    Dribbling, stinking, poo machines. I hope they sh#t on your nice boot carpet, like they do on our pavements / streets / outside schools & shops etc.....

    Mind you, locked in a boot is the best place for them. Can't bite, terrorise, poo, chew, dribble, or generally harass anything from in there.

    No, I don't have a dog by they way.

    Well miket's comments certainly came from left field (thanks for the input to the debate and goodbye ;-) )

    d3fy's response was carefully measured and concise!

    It's nice to see an adult debate in the forum, keep up the good work!

    Yes I have dogs, but that's not important now.....

    OK, sorry, I appreciate that normally rational people lose their sense of reality & reason when it comes to their precious mutts. so I'm sorry for treading on hallowed ground. (poo'd on or otherwise)

    However, that dog guard looks quite hard, don't they do a padded version to prevent dog chips in the event of a crash?
