: X3 Rear Roof Grab Handles + Battery Bay Storage

05-03-2005, 07:34 PM
I sat in the rear of my X3 tonight and noticed that the roof grab handles are spring loaded on both sides.

Any idea of why they are spring loaded as compared to stable?

Also the rear end battery bay beneath the floor, seems to have cut-outs in the foam for large objects that are not used for tools or tire changing equipment.

I found that I could fit a 12v powered air pump inside one - which saves me from having it flop around on the trunk floor.

One of the spaces is for the ski bag if you have the winter package. I keep an additional first aid kit and cargo net there.
