Hi All

Does anyone have unde rseat storage in their Q3?

I'm finding the lack of hideaway storage in the boot ( I don't have the spare tyre) a bit of a nuisance and thought I might fit the under seat trays as a solution( assuming the parts are available)

Yes, I have the storage pack, the under-seat trays are very small and will hold a pair of sunglasses and a few pens but not much more really. I've had more use out of the storage immediately to the right of the steering wheel just above knee level, I wouldn't recommend retro fitting them even if you can.

Hi I have the storage pack, and you must have huge
sunglasses..

I manage to get a Tom Tom, it's charge and screen suction cup, plus a charger for my iPad under the drivers seat.

The storage by the knee is great for sunglasses though,

Hi KeithAgree with Contrition - waste of money. If Audi stated the size of the "storage space" in the brochure they wouldn't sell many - VERY small awkward space indeed. They should check out the under seat stprage in the nre VW POLO - puts Audi's idea to shame.

It's an odd sized space, the hinge is at the bottom and they drop open forward, I have a pair of sunglasses in a case under mine and the passenger seat has a packet of the Autoglym birdwipe sachets that came with the car, that's about it. I must have big glasses Mark and fairplay for squeezing in what you have ;)

I wouldn't spec' it again given the choice.

mmm! Sounds like the storage under s-line seats is different from an SE. (see Mark3988 vs Contrition)
The SE is a pull out drawer with a useful amount of space. Certainly get 3 or 4 pairs of glasses in there.

The pull out drawer is a good idea - had it on previous vehicle - but the S line has a pathetic hinged door that.... well just opens out to reveal a tiny amount of space. A hanky fits in there - just . lol.Mal

Since I was not after the S-line, I didnt really notice but I assume the cost of the storage pack is the same for both s-line and SE. The S-line version does sound like a waste of time; although the nets and hooks are also nice to have. I reckoned on the SE it was the best value option I went for.

Hi, as there seems to be a difference in the design of the storage between S line and SE, thought I'd throw a quick pic up of the SE storage which I find really useful.

I would be very happy with that Mark, it may be because the S line comes with sports seats? I have about a 1/3 of that space under both front seats. Thanks for uploading the pic.

Here is a picture of the S Line under seat storage bins they were taken from my 2012 S Line & re fitted into my 2015 FL S Line + both with sports seats.
Part No's are embossed on the bottom But please check with your dealer first for fitment to your vehicle.
I used the instructions from the following website http://www.audienthusiasts.com/projectunderseatbin.htmlalthough I did not remove the seat bolts & trim I just slid the seat back fully then pumped it up to its maximum height to gain enough height to work, albeit like a contortionist using a light to aidseeing under the seat for the speed fix fittings.Do note the bins are handed so different partNo's for each need to be ordered.Hope this helps, it is a very simple task & completed within 30mins total.

I went for the storage package for my 2015 fl Q3 , very small under seat compartments not sure yet what I could use them for, but nets at the back of the front seats are useful.

Yes, this is yet another advantage of the "standard" seats (as was) - the underseat storage drawers included with the storage pack are huge compared with those for the sports seats. I find mine incredibly useful but the S-line equivalents are too small to be any good at all.

I have replaced standard "manual" seats with standard "electric" ones. Tried to install drawers in electric seats - no room. So one can have roomy drawers only with standard and manual seats.... :)

Interesting, but the link to the site says it is suspended. Late paying the rent perhaps?

I've just fitted a sports under seat storage tray and found a workinglink for the above instructions - http://www.audienthusiasts.com/ProjectUnderseatbin.html

And the only difference is that upper-case P & U. The original link now gives a 404 error which is more reasonable.
