Well, you can improve the blockage by looping the fasteners over the headrests. It looks rather corny, though (perhaps less so with a different color interior):

It's really meant for protecting the dogs and interior, not so much for anything else.

Agreed that the X1 hard cargo cover is sub-optimal.
It's a pita to remove and re-install a couple of times a week.
I'm thinking of dumping it altogether.
I'd definitely go for a retractable after-market cover if one comes up..
I'll start keeping an eye out for one on eBay.
Some entrepreneurial type will undoubtedly take advantage of this revenue/profit opportunity, n'est pas?

Grovsnus, great pics! And what an adorable dog.
Really helpful to see the different ways you can use the cover.
