We just found out that my wife is pregnant with our first, and despite four doors, it is a little small for a family.

With one child, you'll be OK in your car. For two, it's a bit tight. We had two little ones when I had my 328i and it was OK in a pinch but we mostly used my wife's Volvo sedan.

I had hoped so, but I tried fitting an infant seat in it today, just for kicks. Wow, that didn't go well. (mostly my inexperience, but it was still a little tight.) I think the ride, along with the size and temptation to drive too damn fast, will just be a bad idea. I guess an SUV won't be sooo bad, could be a minivan.

Say it ain't so f5racing

True for a newborn; it's ok for an infant. Rear facing seats with our 3 series even in the middle is a little cramped. Front facing my son loves it. He actually doesn't fight to get in the carseat compared to going into his seat when we drive my wife's ES300.

I don't go on fanatics much at all. Ive stumbled upon picture threads on there a few times. Looks like everyone heavily mods their cars over there.. Some are not very tasteful in my opinion..

hey... you asked haha. I prefer fanatics because of the amount of mods people do... I can always find an answer to a question because they DO mod so much. Since I am one of those people I guess I prefer it that way.

back on topic though F5racing that picture is GREAT!
