Hooks In the trunk. (these photos are taken from the back seat towards the back of the car)

You can use them for groceries, holiday decorations, drying hams and cheeses, or mouse acrobatics.

No, I did not.

More importantly, you carry a spare license plate? :bandit::lipssealed:

That’s my actual front plate. The front plate mounted on the car is a half-height reproduction. “For reasons of efficient air flow and increased range, officer.”

I assume not a sticker - where did you manage to source a repro?
iPhone Camera -> Use Mac to reduce height to 50% -> Print on cardstock -> Avery lamination -> VHB tape to front spoiler -> wave to Police officer.

Watching your trip from the beginning I know that front "plate" has been on your car for a long time. Have you ever been stopped because its smaller and not official? Got my Turbo last week and am amazed by it but don't want to put a front plate on. I ordered the tow-hook plate holder but like your approach better, if its not a problem often with the gendarmes.

I was never stopped for the front plate. I've had one of our local police officers notice it at a Construction Traffic Stop, and he walked over and made a comment about it, but didn't feel the need to ticket me. Since it is an exact copy (ignoring height), including the yearly registration stickers, and I'm carrying the real plate in the trunk, I'm not too worried about it. <knock on wood>

Isn't this part of the storage package?

Additional storage compartments in vehicle interior:
- storage tray below the ascending centre console in front
- storage tray on the transmission tunnel in rear
- net and bag hook in rear luggage compartment

Yes correct. But you don’t get a net just the hooks

No net?! I love my net in my A4. Stops packages from sliding when I drive like an idiot. I might have see if I can get an aftermarket one, then.

There is a small net. A small net, a long but shallow under floor bin, the hook, and then two medium sized cube bins. I find it to be a nice little setup for a sporty sedan.

Under floor bin is approx 33"x10.5"x4.5". (Not perfectly rectangluar so measurements won't be exact.)

Two side "cube" bins are approx 6"x10"x6".

Net is very small 9.5"x2.5" and maybe 2" of stretch. Basically one large smartphone fits inside, it holds my Note 9 beautifully. Hah.

Frunk is 21.5"x14.5" on top narrowing to 22"x11.25" on bottom. 14" deep.

All measurements are approx as all the bins are oddly shaped and tapering. This is in a 4S.

Gotcha, yeah in the uk it’s the same. I thought you meant a net that can be connected to the Hooks.
