Does anybody have experience moving their E46 with a trailer from UHaul? I have a '03 325i w/ SP and I was wondering if the car is too low to be driven onto trailer? The car is not lowered, just has the SP option. Any help is appreciated!

If you're going to transport your car, I suggest using a flatbed.

I might be going to graduate school so I need to move all my crap and my car. So I thought of renting a UHaul truck and their trailer for my car, its going to be a long haul (about 500 miles). Anybody has any suggestions??

I don't see any problems using a trailer for your car. Just make sure you get the full size trailer and you'll be fine. I used one to transport my Honda once without issue.

500 miles isn't that far...I say drive it and have a buddy drive the uhaul. If you do trailer it, get the tie downs that strap around the tires and don't secure anything to the suspension.

1) The Uhaul site can help with what fits on thier trailers. I know, I looked at renting a trailer for our M3 for a track event. Their site says the M3 doesn't fit.

2) The recommended way to tie down an E36 or E46 is tio use T hooks. These hook into the holes when you pop out the lift pads. BimmerHaus sells them, $50 per set of 4.

I agree, for 500 miles, drive it. One money saving way it to rent the truck for local, and drive it down and back. Then drive your car down later.

I used one of these trailers to haul my '96 328i about 400 miles. It worked just fine.
