    I've been waiting ages to get the flexible load liner from Audi. It turned up today after a couple of months wait.
    It's a reasonable item, nicely made but very expensive for what it is. (I have quite some experience of buying various types of production plastic vehicle components).

    However the main issue is that it only fits if you have the load compartment floor in the higher position. There were several reasons I didn't want a Quattro, the increased luggage capacity being one.

    Audi UK didn't seem to know that there is this issue with the load liner. The only way you can use it with the floor in the lower position is to remove certain areas of the liner, but doing this removes some functionality.

    Part number P A8V4061180
    So be aware.

    Yeh, there were threads about this quite a while ago (almost a year) - I bought a third party one and have been very happy with it.

    I thought this was common knowledge now?

    Sadly I didn't know, Audi claim they didn't either, how long as this part been available? Any one know?

    They have asked me to take photographs of the issue.
