Can an occasional human fit in the backseat of a 128 and - oh yeah - how about golf clubs in the trunk?
A lot of it depends on the height of the people and the height of those in the front seats (and therefore how far back they have the seats. I know I have had four people in my 135i for an hour's drive... and three people for longer (about three hours). However, the two people in the back seat were 5'1" (my son) and 5'4" (my girlfriend), while the people in front were myself (5'9") and my girlfriend's sister (5'9"). So none of us are exactly towering people... and we fit in there relatively comfortably.

If you or your frequent passengers are much taller, then it's probably not going to work out well for long drives. But I myself have spent half an hour or so riding in the back seat as well, and it's actually pretty comfy. It's certainly cozy, but no worse than many of the cars I grew up with (I grew up in Europe).
