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.

Same, I had them in my first 7.5 and was like, ah these are great, then forgot about the stuff I put in there until I handed the car back. When my current one arrived and found out via the forum it didn't have them I was a bit annoyed. 7 months later I definitely have missed or even thought about them.

I also find them pretty pointless.
I dislike having anything in any of the cubbyholes as they just tend to rattle and piss me off.
My cars interior is completely devoid of clutter.
Not counting the wife.

Agree all this^. Had an irritating rattle in mine, eventually identified as a fob i’d put in cubbyhole.
Reminded me of this-

Well I for one like them so there..  :P :P

Seriously, It wouldn't have been so bad it VW had put a simple blanking piece over where the drawer went to finish off the seats, but without that or the drawer itself, the seats just looked unfinished to me.

The blanking piece and its fitting probably would have cost them as much as the drawers...

I don't believe that Fred. On my wife's first Polo Blue GT (2013) , that didn't come fitted with the under drawer seats that she'd been used to on her original Polo 6R (2011), which i subsequently retro-fitted, and the area where ther drawers would have gone was just covered by a simple piece of moulded plastic that attached by a lug on one side into the side trim and a single screw that wnet into one of the pre drilled holes under the seat, and just finihsed the area off (and that was on a Polo). The whole thing must have cost VW pennies.

The Golf Drawers are quite a pice of work when you get them out so I can't believe a simple trim piece would have cost anything like as much.

Maybe not, but on the other hand, the accountants had already deleted the plastic covers on the ISOFIX mounts and the door mirror screws on the first Mk7.5's.... there is no end to the euro cents they will try to save...

I can't believe the OP didn't know it was there.

I'm not one for clutter, and the drawers are pretty useless, but they are a good place for supermarket bags. How often have you popped in for a few bits and had to buy another bag?
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

I know right! Wasn't until I was adjusting the seat I found it. I wonder if my MK5 had this too?

Such a good idea with the shopping bags.
