    Question DTS OEM Cargo Net ???

    I'm still exploring the many features of my new (to me) 08 DTS LuxII Biarritz. One of the things I can't quite figure out is the OEM Cargo Net. There appears to be 8 possible attachment points. There are 4 large black knobs on the floor of the trunk and 2 on each side behind the taillights. The net itself has 6 loops (3 on each side) and if you fold it in half, the sides of the two halves have velcro to stick to each other. But no matter how I configure the net, it looks weird. Does anyone know the correct installation/use?

    Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, Cadillack! It looks like it uses the knobs behind the taillights and then you double it up like a pouch. I wonder what the 4 knobs on the bottom of the trunk are for???

    If you had a bag or container you didn't want sliding around on the floor, you put the net over them and fasten the net to the floor..

    Thanks, Superjim, looks like the net is a dual purpose item!

    BTW, Justin got back with me on the tuning...no session scheduled for Phoenix as yet.

    I think I caught a glimpse of one once in Ocean Pearl. In that flash I thought it was gorgeous.

    Although I'm personally not a fan of the gold stripe in the tires in this picture. But I'm okay with the white.

    As well, this shade of red was not my favourite for DTS.
