Just got a new 3. Noticed that there is a gap of c 20 mm where the shelf should meet the back of the rear seats, such that I can clearly see the floor of the boot from above. Also a gap between shelf and the tailgate. So the shelf is effectively floating both at the front and back. 

No such problem in my previous 3 (56 plate) where there was a snug fit all round,

It almost looks as if the wrong parcel shelf has been fitted.

Any observations most welcome.

Have you noticed how light the new one is, it's a real featherweight of a parcel shelf. my one is causing some slight vibration so I'm going to add some weights underneath to stop the vibrating.
