Golf season + E46 Cabrio
 
I plan on using my BMW for my golf outings this summer.

Last year I got to take once or twice, but found my bag + cart a little big for the trunk.

I am thinking of changing my bag and cart, so what do you fellow E46 cabrio owners use for golf bags and carts?

Currently I have a Callaway cart bag, not huge but big, and a CaddyTek 13 push cart.

This is why I love my E 46 Vert! My bag is always in the trunk. I use a Titleist carry bag, no cart. I have also carried 2 carry bags. Have to take the driver out of bag to fit, then driver goes in on top. I wouldn't own a car that won't carry my golf bag.

My clubs & bag take up the entire trunk wether the top is down or up. If I want to take someone else with me I have to take my 4runner

I would imagine worst case you could just throw the bag or whatever didnt fit in the trunk into the backseat. My clubs are usually hanging in the garage next to the car, so it would just be a matter of tossing them in the car and i'm on my way. But then again this may not be ideal if you are talking about having them in the trunk all the time in case you get an itch to go play. I personally am not that lucky.

Exactly. My bag easily fits in the trunk. Could add a second, if necessary. For the handcart, which can have all kinds of crap on the wheels, it goes in the back seat on top of my kid's old comforter. With the top down, which it always is when conditions are good for golf, it just lifts right in and out.

Yeah, I was thinking of making a carry bag for the cart, to keep all the garbage on the wheels out of my car. As it stands now both my current cart & bag fit into my trunk, I was just curious if there were anything more compact then what I have.

My cart fits under the convertible top storage area, then bag fit no problem.

I think I will make a carry pouch with a drawstring to keep my interior and/or trunk free of golf course residue left on my cart, especially early season, if it ever arrives!

It doesn't take a lot of work to keep it nice over the years. Leather treatment on the drivers seat 2-3 times/year. Elsewhere as needed. BMW uses quality vinyl so it will last. Honestly, my interior looks almost brand new and I have much better things to do than clean my car. Golf comes to mind.

Good idea about the bag. It's amazing how much crap, especially animal sh*t, that gets on the wheels and the bottom of your golf bag.

And yeah, what's up with this gd weather? Thirty-seven and raining in Conn, versus 77 and sunny Monday. Not as bad as snow, but still, not so good for top down motoring. Or golf!

Enjoy

Very depressing weather for sure. I have have 2 new acquisitions since last fall, my convertible and my new Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter. I am jonesing to bring both out already!

The trunk of my very easily holds 2 bags, I have to take the drivers out like one poster mentioned and put them either in the back seats of the vert or they will fit over the bags in the trunk.
