I ran into this same issue for my 04.5
Variant. 500 bucks is crazy.
It is very high quality, but come on....
So, my solution was a "Pet Baricade" at PETCO for around
$80. It works really well. I am actually very impressed with the
build quality, ease of installment and removal, and mostly,
how it doesn't ruin my car ceiling. So far, it has been great.
I truly suggest it.
No pics, but I can take some tommorow for you.
And I'll stop by PETCO on the way home to get the
item number. Look for me tomorrow night-
I'll throw on a fesh post in this thread with photos and
PETCO item number...
