DIY trunk mounted grocery bag hooks

DIY trunk mounted grocery bag hooks

One thing the 335 doesnt have that my previous car (2006 Audi A4) did was a place to hang your grocery bags. What's worse than having all your shopping slide around in the trunk as you exit your local supermarket in a high G turn

So... courtesy of Audi...(dont flame me yet... they charged me over 500 dollars in bogus fees for a car that was in mint condition upon lease return) I removed the grocery bags from the A4 before I returned it.

Here is the DIY

DISCLAIMER:
1) Although the area you'll be drilling has no vital components nor did I see any wires, this DIY is done AT YOUR OWN RISK.

2) Do not even attempt this if you have back problems. This DIY requires you to be twisted in all the anatomically challenging positions. I'm in good shape and was sore after 15 minutes of being twisted around.


What you need:
- Walk into any Audi dealership (under-cover of course) and order the shopping bag hooks for the 2006 Audi A4. The hooks should come with the appropriate 4 screws.
- A drill with appropriate drill bit (about 1mm narrower than the screws)
- A Phillips head screwdriver
- A magic marker for marking drilling spots a sharpie works well.

The setup


Marking the drilling spots

- Test fit the hooks in the folded (horizontally) position. I wanted to be able to see them stick out a bit so that I didnt have to look under the trunk lid to find them (which is what I had to do in the Audi)
-Then mark the drilling spots with the market as you lay the hooks over your
desired spot.
(Pictured below is where I marked the two dots (two right-most dots)


Drill


Mount the hooks with two screws when done.


Repeat on the opposite side

I would appreciate if someone can move this to the Master DIY thread. Thanks.

Why don't you just buy this from bmwusa.com under the accessories? You can probably find it a little cheaper somewhere else. It's made for the e90 and I don't think there's any drilling required.

Here's the link.

Looking at http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2079036, apparently Jetta hooks are the same as Audi hooks and cost around $10. The part number is 6Y5 867 615 B41. I'm going to order mine at http://www.worldimpex.com/search_by_...Y5+867+615+B41.

I need some of these, I hate driving back from the grocery store and having to drive all nice so I don't get produce flying all over the place.

The E91 has a hook on each side of the trunk/boot that folds out.

Looks good,

I did something similar here which didn't require drilling. Your approac looks more OEM though.

I likewise had these in my Audi RS4 and loved them, I thought it was a simple effective solution. I was amazed at how much weight the things could hold.

I am going to be ordering a couple of these for my incoming M3, as I expect thing might otherwise be rolling around on the way back from the store.

wow, when i sold my 2006 A4 i did the same thing & put them in my E90. i love these hooks. i thought i was the only one. i will transfer these f/ car to car to car. i flipped my the other way so as not to interfere w/ the lifting of trunk well lid.

The Audi hook beats the BMW big clunky one hands down any day! The BMW one is always in the way while this Audi one hides out of site until needed giving you extra height in the trunk. Bags stay on the hooks better in the Audi one too.
