My previous ride was a black x3. I had tons of swirls and finally pulled the trigger on a porter cable. You just can't get the same results by hand.

Kayak inside X5?

Curious if anyone has ever put a kayak inside their x5. I'm looking at a 9'3" kayak. I think it will fit with seats down if turned sideways between 2 front seats. Anyone?

Thanks,
Brett
