    Anyone have any mods or hacks you've done to create a tonneau cover on this model? I just bought a 2014 and it doesn't have one. I see them on ebay for about 100 bucks, just wondering if someone had come up with anything different.
    My first hatchback in 30 years, I hate it people see my contents. Oh and il relocating with work and I'm practically living out of it.

    SM-N950U1 ?

    Just use a dark blanket... In terms of theft prevention, the most effective strategy is to keep an empty car and no tonneau cover, unless you want a smash and grab robber thinking there's something of value underneath it. And I get it, sometimes that's unavoidable, but way too many people let their car fill up with junk and it's not wise because smashing a window to get into what appears to be an empty car is way less likely then a car with stuff to rummage through.

    I would be interested in the cover if it is still available. It is on my "Santa" list...

    I got one someone can have too... Maybe we should collect a whole bunch of these silly unnecessary things and build a miniature electric car out of 'em?
