Hidden storage MK 7.5
« on: 07 January 2019, 09:37 »
So after almost a year and a half I'm still finding new things. You may or may not be aware but under the driver and passengers seats sits a little draw. Great for hiding 'things'  :whistle:. Its also carpeted.

Oh really? I got my GTI on a 67 plate. So anything after, they were removed?  :sad:

Yeah noted elsewhere on here they removed them in early 2018...

These used to be a Mk7 fave.... all sorts of stuff you can put in them... I favour McVities Jamaican ginger cake

I've still not found anything that I regularly carry that fits. I was hoping the service pack would fit but even that doesn't :rolleyes:

Since not having them, I haven't ever thought I wish I had them! I don't even think I've ever used the little storage box on the drivers side yet.

Well under the passenger seat I have a spare pair of glasses (in it's hard case) and the wife's spare sunglasses and my VCDS cable.

Under the drivers one I have my digital tyre pressure gauge and digital tyre tread depth gauge, along with a VW touch up stick, a small pad and some pens.

I find them largely useless, not so much as they are an awkward size (they are) but because I forget about them completely, so though I have microfibres and a few other bits stuffed in them, I only remember when I’ve got some from elsewhere. D’oh! I wouldn’t miss them if they were gone.

I haven't opened mine in about 12 months. Don't know if there's anything in there or not.

Hope I remember to check before I hand the car back. :undecided:
