It was a pro performance 1-st
I just finished the install on my AWD ID4 Pro. I went about it a bit differently. I used long pushpins to locate the holes by poking where I thought the holes should be and then just used a razor blade to cut into the liner where the holes were. I really didn't remove any of the liner. It was a tight fit but it worked pretty well. My only complaint would be that it was hard to get the original floor piece back in.It was a pro performance 1-st
I had the same problem but I discovered that the side plastic parts of the variable floor must sit on the steel part not on the liner.You have to cut the liner (mine was almost precut) for about 1 inch on the lenght of it. You can see where in my last picture.I just finished the install on my AWD ID4 Pro. I went about it a bit differently.

As for part ordering I used my local dealer and paid over $200. When looking for install diagrams I found this website where the cost appears to be way less:

Hope this helps some folks out.
As I am planning to take a road trip in a few weeks (which will involve sleeping in the car for a few nights) I decided to go ahead and buy the official VW variable height boot floor for £167.17. The parts arrived on Tuesday, and while they offered to install it for an additional £180 I decided to forego that cost and install it myself. For reference, I am not what you would consider a "handy" man, so I generally prefer to pay a professional to do any car-related work. But it looked relatively easy to do, and £180 is a lot, so I did it myself this morning.
I was going to take pictures of the process, but to be honest, they are not needed. Installing the variable height boot floor is an incredibly easy and quick process. It only took me an hour to do it, so I cannot fathom why VW was going to charge three hours labour for what would likely take them 20 minutes or less...
In the ID.4 literally every bit of carpet you need to cut for this process has already been pre-perforated. Once you line the rails up you should easily see the "tabs" you need to cut out, which you can to with a hobby knife (or even clippers since they are pre-perforated). In total you need to cut out 10 bits of carpet (5 per side) - three holes for the screws, one thin section maybe 3" below the boot door, and then you need to trim the length of the carpet back to front a bit. And again, all ten sections are pre-perforated so it is almost impossible to screw this up. Once you cut the carpets, the rails are easy to mount using the provided screws, and that it is. You are done:

Thanks for the comprehensive coverage on this. Just wondering how much space you get under the raised floor? Looks like it is just a couple of inches rather than a really useful space.I'm not sure exactly what it is listed as, as there were no options when I bought my ID.4. I don't think it would be listed as a boot liner though, as that is a different thing meant to contain mud and water I think?
There isn't a huge amount to space (maybe 5 inches), but it is great for cables, a first aid kit, etc. I mostly use it for when it would be nice to have a level boot floor, like when I'm moving long furniture or a bike.Thanks for the comprehensive coverage on this.
