So when ordering my 2016, it looks like I missed the Storage Compartment Package for CAD$250. I didn't realized I'd need it until talking to my dealer today. See, I was expecting a cover of sorts and underneath a place to hide things like jumper cables, etc... Turn out I'm wrong.

Asking my dealer, they said it would cost $2k to $3k to install - "Reason being is that they have to replace some parts of the wall and add new pieces, so those parts plus the installation get quite hefty."

Really? I noticed MINI USA has, for the 3-door, the storage compartment tray: http://www.shopminiusa.com/PRODUCT/1383/MINI-LUGGAGE-COMPARTMENT-TRAY

It doesn't seem available for the 5-door yet (bigger boot), but I'd expect something like this with a cover to be easily added...

Has anyone done anything like this for the 5-door? Still loving the car, but not the happiest about this. I'd have hoped my dealer would have spoken up about when ordering.

Right. That's a link to the organizer tray for the boot compartment.

Retrofitting the flat load floor is possible in one of two ways, depending on what you want:

- You can go full retrofit which will allow the boot area to function just like from the factory. The floor can lock in the up position, variable height, etc. This is a somewhat involved retrofit as the floor part is needed, the trim paneling needs to be replaced, and the locks to hold the floor up need to be installed. $2-3K seems a little high for this, but I'm sure it's a few hundred for the parts and maybe a couple hundred for labor (though if you were handy enough, it seems like you may be able to do it yourself.

OR

- You can just get the floor part and it will just rest on the lip of your current setup. You won't be able do much, but you'll at least be able to put stuff on top of it. I've heard of some people just fabricating their own.

If it helps to explain, it is item 11 panelling each side that needs to be fitted, to replace your existing item 10, as well as buying the item 3 movable floor.

Don't know if it is only the Jcw's... But I picked mine up yesterday and the storage pack no longer comes with the underside net, or clips for it to attach to the board.

As of late MY2015, this is true. If you really want it, you can still order the net and the previous flat load floor though. I have it on mine, but I don't think I ever use it :p
