    If you had the boot rack on the right way you wouldn't have to walk behind to keep the crate on

    I think it might be on the right way if you've upgraded to 4 pot calipers. Specially if you need to stop yourself running into the rear of a copper.:wideyed: :happy::happy::happy:

    HT,the one with the huge speaker on is just what I need,there's a young fella in my street that has upgraded his in car entertainment system so even when his doors and windows are closed and late at night,he forces us to turn up TVs so we don't have to listen for sometime before he shuts it down. Now if I had that speaker on my zed!!!!!!!. Wait for him,reverse up to drivers door,turn up max volume, hello young fella get a LOUD of these apples.;)

    If someone had an install manual we could put this to rest. I may be buying one and would rather not be a heathen once I install it improperly!! JIM

    It is all very simple Jim.
    The OEM boot rack was designed to accommodate the OEM suitcase.
    OEM boot rack other way round and you would be opening the lid of the suitcase into your face.
    That's it.......

    Does it come with special straps for the suitcase?

    Why open the suitcase when it's on the (abominable) boot rack?

    No, the suitcase locks on to the rack via the lock on the suitcase.
    Very clever system.
    The suitcase is as rare as rocking horse figs but the boot racks do come up for sale.
    The last time I had seen them for sale was on here (@wildeboy) back in the spring of 2012.
    Mine came with the car but to be honest, if it had not, I would not bother.
