Just get a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the mounting screws.

So ... why not trying the original pocket holder?

^ +1 part number 51477140606
a set of two hooks cost around $15. I do like the Audi more for its design.

I prefer the VW design and just ordered through ECS Tuning. I had a few Jetta's in recent years and am dying now without it. You can't imagine how many gallons of water i've hung from one of those hooks and it never broke!

My hook came with hardware but I didn't use it. There was no lip to use the speednut on, so i ended up using self-tapping sheetmetal screws.

Did you find that the self tapping screws that you used still hold the grocery hook securely to the car? Also do the screws ever come loose? Thanks
I'm not having any trouble with mine, but it has only been installed for a week so far. As an engineer though, I don't anticipate a problem.

Just installed 2 of the VW hooks over the weekend and the install went perfectly. I stuck some deafening stickers so the hook doesn't rattle against the trunk's metal roof too

Another great idea! Looks like the same hook thru ECS is about $25, so I'll be using your VW link.

I recently traded in my Jetta for a 335i, and man have I been missing the grocery hooks. I'll definitely be stopping by VW dealer on my way home today.
