    I have few things in my boot, car is less than 4 weeks old and the boot carpet looks fubar'd? anything with a slight raise on it seems to mark it?

    Anyone else noticed this

    Yep. I have a few indentations in mine. It is very thin and the pile is of poor quality in my opinion.

    Yeah sure is pretty weak. Mine is 2005 and used as a work horse and had numerous gearboxes and car parts thrown in the back. Looks like a tired old van. I'll replace the boot carpet with a new one in the new year i thnk.

    Would have thought that at the cost of the car would justify not spending more £ on a tacky, ill-fitting plastic tray from Halfords?

    Or am I expecting too much these days from German build quality?

    I've just ordered a "semi rigid" OEM boot liner. Should be here tomorrow.

    As you've said and noticed is the reason why I've ordered this. And first time in my car ownership I've had to do this.

    There are 4 different types available.
