Hauling rear bumper
 
I was wondering if anyone has transported an Mtech 2 rear bumper inside of a sedan. as in has anyone been able to fit the bumper inside of the car. I'm asking this because I found one for sale locally and I'm planning on just using my car to pick it up. I was able to fit the front in with out a problem. All I had to do for that one is lay my passenger side seat down all the way. figured they would be about the same.

If you have folding seats it shouldn't be a problem

Yeah I know, but my car lacks that option.

if you got the front in, then you should be able to get the back in. It's not drastically larger

That's what I was assuming, but the guy selling it said he was skeptical.

Lay the front passenger seat down all the way and put the bumper over the top of that extending into the back and the foot well of the front.

That's exactly how I did the front bumper. I think I'm good to go.

it actually is drastically larger. The rear bumper wraps around a lot more than the front bumper does. The wrap around section of the front extends about 10" but the wrap around section of the rear extends 34". Is addition, the ends of the bumper is 81" from the tip to tip. The bumper IS flexible so I suppose you could bend the wrap around ends a bit, but the 34" is none flexible. It MIGHT fit inside but it will be tight and you would most likely have to bend the bumper wings inward.

For four bolts I'd remove the front seat, but this would mean resetting the SRS code.

I have fit an E92 M3 GT front bumper in my sedan w/o folding back seats. I put it in diagonally so that one end was in the passenger footwell and the bumper went between the front seats. It took a minute to figure out but it was fairly easy.
