And keep track of pesky passengers who won't be so careful (driving instructors tend to know the issue and usually won't make such a mistake, but other passengers...). I keep my passenger one latched most of the time.

They also work nicely for belting cargo firmly into the passenger seat. Say an overnight bag or a large bottle of water.
-Thanks for the tips!

-I doubt there is enough width to fit golf clubs, but I'll check asap. I did some calculations today, and the conversion effectively frees up 1 cubic foot (It seems like a lot more - think of it as 10% more space). I'd like to get together again, but I'm not sure when. The coming week is pretty jammed for me.

As much as I love my M5, I agree with your assessment!
