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?

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.

I think the drawers were a rarely specced option on the mk5 (going from my dodgy memory as neither of mine had them that I remember but my mk6’s did as standard)

The drawers are quite handy for hiding clutter but too small as others have said.

I think you’re right Mr Ex.  They were standard on my mk6 but I vaguely recall speccing them on my second mk5 GTI.  Waste of money that was!  Then they give them to you for free on the mk6 when you don’t want them!  :laugh:

My early Mk5 definitely didn't have the drawers under the seats.

My 2006 MK5 GT TDI did, but that had full leather so don't know if it was part of that ?

Mine neither but at least it had a proper trim not just a gaping hole.
At least I think it did!  :grin:

The seats, dials and steering wheel were just sublime in the mk5, small details like drawers were just peripheral and inconsequential.

If I had under seat drawers, I would have to think of something to put in them......

+1  this is what I use one for, the other holds CD's in cardboard sleeves to avoid the distracting rattles.

The 1990s have called for you Preztel, they want their CDs back!  :grin:

I can live with the simplicity of the 1990's. After a long day sometimes it's easier to just push a CD in the slot rather than navigate an iPod or phone. Either that or listen to the BBC light program. :smiley:
