Can I add a CWP pass-through aftermarket?

I'm thinking about buying a 2010 335i with the M package but it does does not have the cold weather package. I'm wondering if I can have the pass-through created aftermarket so that I can stow my golf clubs in the trunk even with the top down. I realize this sounds strange, but its kind of a big deal to me.

Thanks all!

not exactly what you mean unless I google it, but the back seat folds down to cover up the rear seat cushions and acts like a shelf that you could put luggage on, even clubs

Thanks for the reply. To explain further, I've seen cars with the cold weather package have a pass through from the trunk (for skis), where you don't need to flip the seats down. On the 335 I'm looking at, instead of the pass through behind the rear arm rest, there is simply a panel. I'm wondering if anyone has ever considered cutting out a hole in the panel so that you can have a pass through. Of course, hopefully a bit more elegant than merely cutti g a hole. I've tested my golf bag through the pass through on another 335 and its a perfect way to stow my clubs in that I can still have a passenger in the backseat, top down, and clubs I the trunk.

There is a DIY on another site - I don't think we are supposed to post links from other forums, so you'll have to search on e90post - that looked decent when he was done. It at least gives you an idea what he did and what is involved.

Are the cars you're looking at with the small armrest pass-through convertibles? My guess is that they are not. To my knowledge, the ski-bag CWP package is available on an E92, but is not there on an E93, which has its own large pass-through associated with the convertible top. That, however, requires the seatbacks to be down.


EDIT, I take that back, there does seem to be a ski bag option on the E93, albeit differ net from the E92.

EDIT 2: And CA gets in with his picture as I'm doing edit 1.

I have an E93 with the CWP. There is a pass-through from the trunk that includes a ski bag as you can see in this picture. The seatbacks to not have to be down to use it as the armrest can be folded down or even removed.

In essence, I'm trying to determine if the "trunk pass through" can be retrofitted on a convertible that does not have the cold weather package.

The part is shown on Real OEM:
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...74&hg=52&fg=20

However, no indication it can be retrofitted. It seems like it should be able to be done, since in lieu of the pass-through, the car merely has a thin panel in its place.
