Apparently it is not dented it is simply molded to fit the car. No cracks or spider webbing. Just needs the two generic screws to fit in.
Are these still available
Yes please email me at dahyper1yahoo.com to arrange shipping if youre interested.
I think the all weather cargo mats Ive seen on ebay are the european style mats... Most dealers here in the US sell you Monster mats which are a different material. If you could give us a link Im betting we could answer your question with some amount of finality.
httpcgi.ebay.comebaymotorswseB...m180281730223 heres the link and i didnt notice that the pic was for an a4 until after it came ill take pics of the mat in a lil bit
i was under the impression it would fit as well as that a6 mat maybe thats in a sedan i got mine in there but there was a lot of effort. its a freaking audi its hard to believe that theres folding and cramming involved. lord knows what will happen when i fold the seats down....
I just recieved my cargo mat today. My first impression is that it doesnt fit nearly as well as the picture on the A6 mat. I will post pictures once my phone is charged. Hopefully over time it will fit better. The mat seems a little smaller and the sides dont seem to fit as snugly as I would like.
Suggestion- If the part is a rubber compound take it out and let it sit in the hot sun for a few hours and let it get loss and flimsy. Then put it back in and press it into place. When it cools it should take in the form that you have put it in. Another suggestion if you have acess to a heat gun us it to heat the lip when its in place and have an ice towel with you. So when you heat up the lip press it the way you want then cool it of quick and let it shrink into place. I had this problem with a few cars that I have had with all weather mates. The sun way worked on my Jettas but had to use the heat gun on when I had the honda(yuck) sorry a3night or should i now say s2knight thats different honda.
RE 4RINGSROD Great point The mat actually sits MUCH better now after having baked in the sun. I took the top cover off and I could tell that when heated up its much more workable and then sets as its cools. Ill post up pics Monday. I saw the carpeted mat and was pondering btw the two. However I need the rubber mat for my dog as he still pees a little when really scared or excited. Dont want to take any chances. Heres the link to the carpeted mat. httpwww.directaudiparts.comstore...261&page1 pics coming
Youve got a PM.
Youll like them Will. Check out my gallery if you want to see a picture of the same mats in my car. Cheers
Quote ORIGINAL atljoe Had to let my beloved A3 (2006 2.0T) go for a bigger car. The following items are for sale. Check your dealer for compatibility with your car. Prices include shipping in the U.S. audi XM Tuner 8E0 035 593 A. It was used with the audi Concert stereo. 80 Lava Gray touch up paint (barely used) and clear coat (never used). 10 All weather front floor mats for the A3 (aftermarket).
These are great at containing spills or dirt audi Parts Super Store And they snap into place. I got the cabin mats and the cargo mat.
What KGW said Euro rubber floor mats gray or black about 100. They cover more carpet on the passenger side hold quite a bit of liquid fit great dont show wear.
Quote ORIGINAL latebreak Im looking for a rear cargo net for my 07 A3. My dealer wanted 175 bucks for one which is rediculous Anybody know of a source that is cheaper Or of an aftermarket net that fits our cars nicely The last thing I want is some loose flappy net back there that provides no benefit. Thanks matt Not much out there online for A3 175 is not that expensive. Check out other cargo nets online. Cheers
I am not certain how the cargo net look for the A3 I got a Thule cargo thingy (sorry not to be more specific)that works well. I also got something else at target that cost 20 that basically sticks to the A3 mat and does the job for a lot less money. Not certain if that is what you were looking for hope it helps

The A3 is not supposed to do this. In fact when I got my A3 the salesman kept talking up how it is impossible to lock your key in the car except by closing them in the hatch area. My car has never locked me out when the engine was running. For that matter when I get out and dont lock the doors the car automatically locks all of the doors except the drivers door after a certain amount of time. If you

The top 10 researched cars by gays right now... Read it again... it is the top 10 research cars (not necessarily by gays) but on a gay orientated website. I am not trying to start an argument here... just clarifying. Fact of the matter is... I am not gay I got the car thinking I was going to give it to my wife when I could afford a second car but wound up loving almost everything about the A3
This is really an interesting and important matter and I™d like to know as well. Form my 1st year of (automobile wasn™t my stream but the 1st year is the same for all of us in my country) what I know is ˜breaking in a new engine™ means you are basically attempting to set the piston rings and the valves and that is very very important for a mechanical engine in terms performance for long run. To do this the most important thing is to be very careful about not to keep the engine at constant revs and preferably not exceeding 2500 to 3000 rpms during the breaking in period. Ive also heard that synthetic motor oil should not be used during the break-in period because they work too well in keeping friction down. Now the thing which I don™t know is how many miles Iwe need to go to do this. But I can guess that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. TDi takes a bit longer to set. Most manufacturers have recommendations in their handbooks. I googl™ed a little bit and below the extract I got so far Basically you start off treating the engine very gently i.e. gentle revs and never more than 14 throttle. Over time you gradually use more revs and more throttle until you eventually end up using the full range of the engine. It is important to eventually end up using all the power and rev range to wear harden various parts. It is also important that you do not keep to a single continuous speed or gear but vary your speed quite a bit during this time (a long highway journey is NOT a good break in if you just sit in top gear at a continuous speed). This is because things are still hardening up and you can wear a groove into them. Modern engines break in relatively quickly often 1000km older designs took longer as the tolerances were not as precise. The first oil change is often a lot sooner than later ones as during break in rough edges from manufacturing will be worn off and end up in the oil. Drive it gently. General rule is not to exceed 3000 - 3500 rpm. for the first 500 miles. It is also a good idea to be kind to it for the first 2000 miles. All engine bearings and cylinders etc. must wear evenly and properly. Also piston rings need to seat. Some piston rings take up to 5000 miles to fully seat or wear evenly to cylinder bore. Not foiling proper break in procedures could result in premature engineparts failure. Im really interested in the comments from some experienced driver and mechanics. I really need to know whether is it 1000 miles or 10000 miles to complete to break-in properly The car I™ll be having is a 2.0 TDi A3.
