The extra space is really useful. When we hired a MK7 on holiday when they first came out we weren't impressed by the boot (smaller than our old mk5 boot) but didn't know you could lower the floor. Without it we couldn't fit our two suitcases in the boot - which easily fitted the Mk5 boot.

The GTe and R don't have the option to lower the floor because of battery/crazy 4wd stuff.

The extra depth is sometimes quite useful to be honest. I've been grateful for it when I've hired a rug doctor (although it fits at the higher level, it rattles about and occasionally taps the rear window).

I must say when I hired the Rug Doctor I was very impressed with the finish, fell in love with my wife again.

Actually Lol'd at that myself  :wink:

I moved the luggage floor to the lower level today.

It feels much more keyed in at the rear with improved balance through sweeping turns, I think this is most likely down to the lower centre of gravity compared to the "elevated" floor position. :)

In uk spare tire come in full size?
Besides extra space, in Argentina 2 levels are because some models comes with full size spare tire. And gti comes with temporary tire.
Those like me who want a full size wheel we need this part.

I've been missing out on that extra bit of cornering prowess. What will I do!!

For the ultimate in balance you should try the modified lightweight boot floor made from polystyrene and angel breath.

Have you got a pic of the polystyrene boot liner and part number please?
