Miffed by Land Rover Accessory

I like using a load retention net in the boot to stop items shifting in corners. I had the original net in the FFRR. I tried it in the Evoque and found the main boot floor net to big to sit tightly between the retention points, so I duly ordered the Evoque Load Retention Net VUB503130.

I fitted it last night to discover it is identical to the FFRR itemEvil I know have two very expensive over sized netsBig Cry The net is so loose there is insufficient tension to keep the hooks retained. My work around is to stretch the hooks onto each other through the retention hoops. I then get sufficient tension to keep the net in place.

My advice is if you are considering a load retention net, look to the third party market and don't pick the LR item, it is over priced and does not fit.

Normally the accessories are high quality but in this case it is not designed for the Evoque.

The load retention net from my Freelander1 works fine and it's now 10 years old!

For those Aussie's here, supercheap have a net which only cost about $35 aud that fits my Subaru well. Maybe try that before ordering the LR one Wink

Can't believe what an exorbitant rip off this LR net is- and to not fit?! I'm using one from my Audi TTS.

Have they given you the right one? I would have imagined it would be identical to the freelander, rather than fulfatRR

I wished I had known that, I paid over £70 and the rachet straps are only worth about £5!

I am sure I got the right one, I took the code out of the brochure and checked it on delivery.
