does anyone know what's this for? :yikes:

I keep my cargo net in it. Also handy for small stuff that is likely to roll around (water bottles, etc).

Itís funny that you mention that because I was down at the beach and I used it to hold my Coronas with some ice (even though it could hold 2 or 3 bottles).

How do you get the water out once the ice melts? Does it lift out so you can pour the water or do you just rely on a trusty shop vac to suck it out?

You didn't use much ice did you? I would think it might be a lot of water to be pulling up with a towel :dunno:

Think dude...you don't put ice directly into the hole. Here's where those grocery plastic bags will come in handy. Try it but be sure to use a bag that don't leak. :tsk:

I knew you wouldn't put the ice directly in, but other than a zip-lock bag you are going to have leaks and even they leak.

Personally, I would put liquids in a storage bin like that. I was only asking questions to see how he kept it from being a big mess.

It's funny because I am now thinking of a way to drain liquids from it by way of drilling a hole and install a flexible tube underneath. I'll see if it's possible when I get home 2nite. :drink:

I hope you all realize that the original poster in this thread is probably now being hauled away by the Chinese secret police so they can search all of his X3 vehicle compartments for contraband :p

I read somewhere that all Internet traffic out of China is monitored.

Did you notice that the drinkers are fighting about towels and plastic bags :nono: , while the -- ahem -- others are laughing and having a good time? :bustingup Except for our friend from China, who asks innocent questions that inevitably seem to lead to inane threads. :yikes: Gotta love it!

I certainly don't expect this topic to be so popular, :D
I was asleep when you're talking about towels and plastic bags, I think the time difference is 13 hours between China and US Eastern time.
Thanks for all suggestion, except the chairmain mao's book. :bow:
because I haven't really read it for once and I don't think I will do such thing in future

So, how many X3's have you seen in China? Are BMW's popular there or a rarity?

X3 is only availible on market since Oct 2004. I can see it occasionally on city center,
X5 and Cayenne is more often you can see on the road.
most people will choose VW or Honda/Toyota as their first car. But BMW becomes more
popular since they started to assemble it in China :thumbup: , only E46 and E60 sedan, other
models are still imported from oversea. :dunno:

With that kind of speed, you're definitely in the right profession.
