In reply to monkeymark: No carpet cuts anywhere, entire house is wood or tiles and a few rugs lol. Also I want it to be removable so if I'm throwing in other gear or want the extra space back for luggage its all fairly easy.
I'll check the vw site, odd how the guy didn't try sell it to me after attempting everything else lol.
What about a cheapie boot liner? Argos do them, I've got a carpet lined boot (in cream, what was I thinking!) and I picked one up for about £20. Stops mucky walking and cycling kit marking the upholstery and it should be ok for dogs too.
In reply to IMA: Hi, we had a hatchbag boot liner for our estate (had a large Weimaraner...). The fit and materials were really good, the fasteners to hold the top of the liner around the edges of the boot (below the windows) were not so good, but this was going back 7 years so they may have improved. They were flat plastic hooks that hooked over the trim that the liner then velcro'd onto, but the velcro kept coming off the plastic hooks.
We got the liner and the fitted carpet bit to go on top of it. The dog loved it and would lie in the car given any opportunity...
I've just got a bootliner from bootliners.co.uk for my Passat estate. From memory, they had the optional fold-out flap for bumper protection for a reasonable extra-over cost. Good value at about £29 for the basic one and their service was very good for what I wold say is a decent quality product.
Another vote for hatchbag and boot buddy. Currently have a hatchbag in a focus estate and it is superb for keeping the boot clean with a very hairy white dog. The boot buddy is good but the only problem I found is that the dog hair eventually found its way down the sides of the liner as it doesn't fasten to the side of the boot. Its also a pain to store should you not want it in the boot for whatever reason.
