Fold down your rear-seat center armrest and pull open the pass through to the trunk and you should see it. If the cover for the bag is as hard to open as my X5, dont worry just pull hard and it should open up. Hope this Helps.. (This is how it is on most bimmers).

Actually, it may be stored under the cargo floor in the truck area, in a black plastic case next to the battery. This is where mine was, and you can install it into the rear center armrest as the person above me described. Do a search, its where I found my instructions.

Thanks ! I did find the plastic case next to the battery. I was unable to open the case. Is the bag in that case ???

Yes. There's a button on the front "face" of the box. Push it while pulling the "lid" back.

Hard to put ski sack back after it's been opened?

I have never used mine but intend to next week. I have a roof rack though but may take it off and have the skis inside, travelling alone this time.

Question:
I tried with mild violence to open it but failed, gave up since it was not needed then. Is it a pain trying to put it back together once it has been used?

It's a little cumbersome to re-pack, but if you have the time and patience to fold it the way it came, it is *possible* to get it back in. We eventually gave up, since the kayak paddles are in there so often we just leave it open.

With little practice, I now find mine quite easy to fold up. Easier than a road map.

I've been able to fold it up without major problems, just follow the creases. I think it's really useful for stowing my skis the 1x a year I hit the slopes.

I'm still very irritated by the fact that I didn't get the chance to ski this past season (To add insult to injury, I didn't even go to the beach last summer either). No thanks to this early spring...

I still have mine unused. I prefer my Thule rack. I use it for skis, kayak and bicycles. Keeps the interior protected.

I got the BMW OEM rack car and we have a roof box on the other car. Since I am travelling alone this time I may not move the roof box to my car and have the skis inside. Will have plenty of room inside and with the sack it won't make a mess inside the car, and the skis are not particularly dirty anyway.

we have an '08 & the bag was next to the battery - have never used it though - have a Thule roof mount and also an LLBean bag that we use when flying with skis - we use that bag in the X3 instead .
