    Just looked at the front of the (seat part) passenger seat, and under where your knees would be... where I'd expect to be a plastic panel across the front, I have nothing... even though the side panel has 2 litt;e 'lugs' that would ayyached to a panel on the front (like the storage panel I have in this position on the driver's side).

    Can anyone confirm they have the same or not?

    Yep mines the same, about a week after owning the car we lost the wifes handbag. After much shouting I found it in the car in the little space...

    Cheap skates, how much would it have cost to fit another little comaprtment like the drivers side has.

    What didn't you opt for the "plastic panels under the seat pack"!

    About as much as the storage pack costs /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif it has one fitted then... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    On my 3-door TDI SE, assuming we are talking about the same thing, I have a drop down panel which houses the first-aid kit. It the same on both front seats.

    My SE has the same under both driver and passenger seats. I think it may be because the SE comes with the 'storage pack' as standard and it's part of that pack.

    unbelieveable! I thought Audi would put at least a blank panel there... even if you never see it! Phhh! I thought that after my recent Airbag light problem, which was fixed by cleaning a contact near the passenger seat, that the dealer had forgotten to put a part back... but alas, it looks like there was nothing there in the first place.

    out of interest, those of you with stoarge in that position on the driver's side (like I do), what do you keep in there? I currently have a bag of fruit gums /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    My Audi supplied first-aid kit. In my passenger's side one I keep a plastic container of 'wet-wipes' for wiping sticky hands etc.
