You know, that secret closed compartment inside the trunk on the left... it looks like a first aid kit area. Mine's empty, I don't have anything cool or illegal [enough] to put in there :suspicio:

I ripped mine out for the extra 2-3 cubic feet of luggage space. I just need to find
some nice matching carpet to cover with. I tried vinyl,but the glue holding it melted
in 110 degree heat. And yes,I did need every bit of space.

CD changer, and VW first-aid kit.

While we are on the subject, anyone know what the small compartment with the two brass screw holes is intended for? They are the same threaded deals that the CD changer mounts to. There must be something designed to mount there.

Where does everyone put that black pouch that has the wheel lock key, small screw driver, center cap remover and jack stand in it? I'm not sure if there is a secret compartment somewhere for it. I went to get my wheels aligned one day and they asked me where the wheel lock key was and I told them I had no clue. :D They eventually found it, but didn't put it back and I've since looked for a spot for it to go and just put it in the "secret compartment" that you guys are talking about. The only thing is, its a really tight fit. So where is it supposed to go?

At least on my '01.5, that black pouch has it's own area in the trunk. On the right side, near the top, there are a couple of straps that hold the pouch up there. Then, there is a lined cover that fits over it.

In my Variant, I store a bag of bungee cords in one of the compartments.
That way I can always strap something on the roof rack or bungee the hatch closed.
