    Just wondering how many boot/curry hooks are in the boot of a S3 saloon

    I have two in my current A4 and find them invaluable, especially for takeaways :laugh:

    Just wondering whether I may need to 'transfer' one :D

    These are 'em -

    The advantage of the S3 having heated seats if just for that task. Transporting the take-away home and keeping it warm on the seat. I see no other use for heated seats.

    Really? None at all? How about warming you up in the winter?

    Never used the hooks and I certainly will not be transporting any take aways in my car. That's what home delivery is for...

    Presume they just mount to the parcel shelf do they then? Guess the HB won't have the mount points

    On my A4 saloon, they are mounted on the bodywork frame underneath the rear shelf :)

    Difference between the hatchback and the saloon is that the bodywork the hook is fitted too on the saloon is metal whereas the sb is made of only a low weight bearing substance. Perhaps this is why the hooks aren't fitted to that model...

    You put takeaway curry in the boot?!

    Asking for trouble, even if it is on a hook!

    Never had a problem in 5 1/2 years using 'em on my old A4 :thumbs up:

    Before I sold my A4 I was able to 'acquire' a spare hook from it for the new car ;)
