I could pretty easily fit my road bike (60c) in the back of my 128 with the seats folded and the front wheel removed.

My full suspension mtbs required removal of both wheels.

Beautiful rack (nice bike, too)!

I'm leaning towards something on back, but that roof rack looks about perfect.

Thanks for the pics!

Agreed. In the car is my strong preference, and that is usually the route I took on solo jaunts, even to the point of removing both wheels so that my mtb would fit back there.

Previous 128 owner checking in, and wondering how people carry bikes on/in their 2s. My interest has been rekindled by the upcoming 4-door 2 Series. If it is offered with a 6 MT, one will likely...

Need one of each.

One for day to day driving around; traffic, errands, work, kid shuttling, etc.

And one for DRIVING!

Now we can debate which trans for which scenario. :-)

But they DID reserve an internal code for just such a wagon, and the Germans don't mess around with things like that.
