Angry No 12v Socket in the Boot :(

I noticed today in the boot of my new EVO that there is no 12v socket where the boot light is. The hole is cut out for it but nothings there. My old Grande Punto had one there so I assumed this must be wrong.

Does anyone who owns an EVO have the same issue as me? Could any EVO owners check before I take it to my local dealer to ask them why it isn't there.

Thanks

Very true I suppose.

I think more along the lines of cost cutting, like the lack of a middle positioned interior light on eleganza EVO's too.

Again what my Grande had ...

They've probably dropped it, like they did on the later face lift Stilos, although my Stilo has a hook where the power aux is in the pre face lifted versons.

Finally remembered to have a look and my 07 Sporting does not have a power socket in the boot just a round hole next to the light.

I'm guessing it would be quite easy, is one really required?

Re: No 12v Socket in the Boot :(

Could be surprisingly useful...kids want to watch a DVD whilst you've got sat nav plugged in?

Carrying a powered coolbox, don't want it sat in front passenger foot well?

Boot plug would be useful...not essential, but useful.
Thanks puntoevogp thanked for this post

For the sake of a few pence you'd of thought they'd of installed it as standard, not that i've ever found a use for one but since the holes there i see no reason why they couldn't run a wire.

Re: No 12v Socket in the Boot :(

I have just converted the 12v socket in the front to a cigarette lighter.

So now have a 12v socket which I am going to try and fit in the boot, will keep you informed.
