Convertible Luggage

Does anyone know if the luggage designed for the E93 will fit in the trunk with the top down ?

I have it. It is good quality and fits the rear seat perfectly. The entire set will not fit in the trunk with the top down. The smaller trolley bag will I am not sure about the larger one. It is possible to get the luggage in and out of the rear seat with the top up but it is obviously much easier easier to drop the top before loading the luggage.

Thanks so much. Did you mean to say the entire set will not fit in the trunk ? Do you think the large trolley or the small trolley would fit with the two smaller ones (in the trunk) ?

Yes, it is a BMW product and I don't understand why they don't try to sell it to everyone who buys a convertible. I found it on the web site and ordered it from BMW Cleveland while I was waiting for the car to be built.

It is a BMW product and AFAIK are only available from BMW dealers. The ones on ebay are probably from BMW Cleveland. They have a big presense on ebay. That is where I purchased my luggage, the wind deflector and some other accessories. The dealer I bought the car from (Braman, Palm Beach) wanted list price so I went elsewhere.

The full set will not fit in the trunk with the top down. I believe the small trolley will fit with the top down, not sure about the large. I am also not sure if the side bags will fit along with either of them top down.

Top up there is a possibility that the whole set will fit but I never tried it.

I forgot to mention that the set includes a set of straps that hold the luggage securely so that it wont shift forward if the car stops suddenly.



The luggage easily holds enough for a weekend or longer trip and there is still storage space available in the trunk with the top down. With the top up between the luggage and the trunk there is a lot of luggage space. Ms, Audio and I use the BMW luggage every time we go on a trip in the 335i.

Catainaudio, do you play golf by any chance? Was wondering if you've tried putting a golf bag in the back seat and how it went. Looking at a hard top 328 and the dealer assured me there was no way to get golf bag in the trunk even thru the ski bag hole. Only option was back seat.

Thanks

I don't play golf and have never tried to put a golf bag in the car.

Looks nice. Whats is made of? your trunk will hold quite a bit with the top down, the space gets larger toward the back seat, you would need a soft type bag to squeeze it out with the top down. Maybe a nice black leather bags! thats what I have been looking for. I might search ebay and see what they sell for on there

Yomama,
We have had two golfbags in the backseat of the E93, no problems.

In order to get at the luggage space in the trunk the top has to be either up or stacked.

It depends on how much you have to fold up their legs.
