Z4 door storage

I'm not at all happy with the door storage on the Z4--it's narrow and extremely difficult to get things in and out. I started thinking yesterday about making it wider. In theory you could saw off the outer part of the storage compartment from the door, attach a fillet to make it wider, then reattach the bit you sawed off.

This is all theory as I don't know how the door parts fit together--does anyone know?

The alternative, if there is sufficient interest, would be to contact Dräxlmaier, the original manufacturer, to see whether they would help in some way. Their Interior Systems Division "produces luxury leather interiors of unsurpassed quality including Functionally Integrated Systems (FIS) which combine wire harness technology with exceptional interior door design and function."

They are based near the factory, just south of I85 on 290

I'm not exactly local, geographically. Anyone fancy a challenge?
