Our ID.3 will come with the VW accessory mats and boot liner a but the bumper protector is on back order and won’t be on it when we collect in a couple of weeks. We have 2 scruffy springer spaniels who will inhabit the boot and hop in and out of it quite frequently, sometimes it’s a scramble all over the bumper to make the jump and the ID.3 has a slightly higher rear lip than our current car.

The VW boot liner and the top of bumper protector are fine but really only a partial solution, our outgoing V40 has a Volvo accessory fitted liner that attached up the sides and back of the boot, so what I’m looking for now is a similar type of liner (I realise this will be non-VW) with integrated bumper protection (e.g. the flip out type that also helps with paws grip).

I see plenty of these sorts of things online, but just wondered if anybody had got such a thing sorted for their ID.3 that fits and works well? Thanks, first post :)

Forget about the top of the bumper protection if it's literally a hard wearing clear sticker, it covers most of the top, but not the sloping edge. The edges of it will pick up muck over time soo, so it'll look grubby. I got a boot buddy cloth overhang bumper protector that velcro under the load liner (get the semi rigid rather than flexible load liner).

The towel is covering top of rear bench and head rests so our Labrador doesn't drool all over them when she rests her head there. Will get a smaller towel to do the job for a better fit but basically the towel clamps into the front edge of the head rests and loops back over. Less handy if you have adults in the back rather than child seats.

That's more for having the back seats down and it's a lot to roll up when you haven't got the back seats down. With my set up the load liner is always in place and you've a small amount of cloth overhang to tuck away when not deployed.

Great info, @monkeyhanger, you wouldn’t have a link or could let me know where you got the boot buddy could you?

This fits the ID.3 really well, with the lower boot floor position: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1

Oooh, interesting, we plan to use the higher boot floor position, I guess that affects the fit quite a bit

Slightly Off topic - but I got a boot lip clear film protection kit from ebay for £17 I think - and its worked a treat. Can barely see it.. (I only left one bubble where it goes over the edge.. grr..).

How long has it been on? Over time I expect that the edges (the thickness/cross section) will get dirt adhered to it, and that's what put me off going down that route. It happens with VW OEM films.

I got it from BootBuddy's own website, They don't have an ID3 one officially, So I got the one for the T-Roc - same boot opening width.
