Boot floor support?

When you lift up the boot floor should there not be a support to keep it raised? I have seen pictures of them in the manual but don't know where it is kept

It's kept permanently in place under the floor, it deploys automatically when the floor is lifted.

Probably because it's a 320. I doubt your's came with a sunroof, hi-fi and AWD standard either. You can't get one in the US without that, and I suspect much more, that doesn't come standard in Europe and elsewhere. For that matter you can't even get the 320 trim in the US.

Why don't you do 320d in the US?

Diesel isn't popular here. Gas down the street from me today was at $2.27 USD per gallon, or 43 BP per liter. The GT doesn't do high sales numbers here, so there's no 320i, and the 328/330 and 335/340 come fairly well equipped.

We do however do the sedan 320i (not diesel) - which is basically a Jetta. I always feel a little sad when I see one.

Perhaps you only get that with the Extended Storage pack (which I have on my 2015 335d GT) - it's a single gas strut mounted in the middle under the floor. Should be easy enough to retrofit if you keep banging your head!

Exactly this ^^^
It is part of the Extended Storage option.
