I know a lot of people dont like them because you cant store stuff on top of them.cabby09 said:I see the "American" version looks like its getting a retractable parcel shelf. I saw a review video and it definitely was retractable. Wonder if it will fit our models?
Or if VW had thought it through in the first place.Roy said:Gerge
You have a non UK model, do you have a spare wheel?
To the best of my knowledge, it's not possible to store the parcel shelf on UK spec vehicles (unless someone knows different).
With or without the side storage panels, face up or face down its still to wide for the distance between the wheel arches.
It would be great if someone could find a method to store the shelf, but previous discussions have not resolved it and I believe damage has been caused by some trying to force the shelf in.
