Visted my dealer today, my CA and I looked at several new F10's, none of which optioned as mine (ZDA, ZCV).They all had the elevated little storage box on right, none had net on left.

Furthermore, the in stock F10's little storage box platform on right sat at the same heigth as my non boxed derivative, and after a little FBI work we determined that the steel body/chassis component under my cars left/right fender trunk are solid and higher, leading us to the conclusion that the blind spot detection radar has been placed under there, taking up the space where the box would go.

As far as the net on the left, its a mystery, BMW must have deleted this some point during the MY...

So now, mystery solved, need to find some type of modular compact storage that can hold small stuff + a new storage net. Been using the same net I have transferred from car to car since my '93 325iA, but F10 hooks are lined up completely differently , doenst fit in the F10 trunk.....
