He's recommending Briggs and Riley as very high quality luggage.

I use Tumi luggage for airplane travel. It is very good quality but it is not really much different in quality than the BMW luggage I use in the E93. The major advantage of the BMW luggage is the fact that it fits the car perfectly. I am sure you could find trolley bags of the same or similar size but the side bags are shaped to exactly fit the car and would not be available anywhere else.

I did an exhaustive search for luggage just recently. I decided on Briggs & Riley for a variety if reasons and most of my travel is 2-3 days. I went with the baseline http://www.briggs-riley.com/category...pright_U121CXW
They have other options, and the best part of their warranty is free repair regardless of how the bag is damaged

I am sure that Briggs and Riley is very good quality but the deciding factor for me was the way the BMW luggage (which is very good quality) perfectly fit the back seat and the fact that the BMW luggage came with tie down straps and properly situated hooks to attach them to that match up to the hooks in the back seat and keeps the luggage secure. I will add that I only use the BMW luggage for car trips and have not and do not intend to use it for air travel.

If you do not have an E93 (or possibly a 4 Series Cabrio - not sure if the E93 set fits the 4 Series Cabrio or if BMW is offering a set for it) there would be no particular point to the BMW luggage, particularly the unusually shaped side bags.

It's obvious that no one has the answer you need. Have you asked a dealer yet? The convertible has just come on the market so it's possible that there will be custom fit luggage sometime in the future.

Also search the ED forum. Somebody made a thread about just how much you can fit in the trunk with the roof down. It was actually a fair amount. Probably more then that set could hold even

Yes. I have asked the dealer and BMW USA and gotten no answers. I have also asked on several forums to see if anyone has any experience. I have gotten a ton of great answers to all of my questions EXCEPT if it will fit the 4 series. I highly suspect it will and I plan on upgrading from a E93 to a 4 series soon so the information would be nice before I buy it.

I don't think it is obvious that no one has the answer but it obvious that the thread keeps getting bumped to the second page so no one sees it unless they search. Many people do not check this site every day for new stuff like I am sure the moderators do.

That was extremely helpful. Thanks.

But I have a few questions. Well one really. The numbers don't add up. You said the bags are 26" and 22". That's 48" and you said the trunk was 34". You also said the bags were 12" times 2 and 10" times 1. That is 34" and you said the trunk was 26". What am I reading wrong ??


BMW Luggage sizes for comparison:

Large Suitcase 22" x 21.6" x 9"
Small Suitcase 22" x 14" x 9" (carry on size)
(2) Attache's 14" x 20" x 7" (probably too big for a personal item carry on)

I think I may have gotten it.

In the first picture the black bag is in the back against the seat. Right ? That makes in 10" + 22" which is less than 34"

And in the second picture both bags are widthwise which is 17" and 15" again less than 34"

Therefore I think the two BMW bags will fit with the small trolley against the back seat on its side and the big trolley laying flat.

Also it appears that the trunks of the 3 series and the 4 series are pretty much the same size give or take an inch or so maybe.
