Easy! If you have fold down rear seats. I've had 2 boards, a pair of skis and 3 people in mine. No problemo.

Edit: oh if your seats don't fold then roof rack time!

Take off one of the bindings and you can angle it in. Thats what I always do.

Your seats should be able to fold down. Check for the handles in the trunk near the subwoofers

Your post is epic fail. Each of my friends with E46 sedans, ALL have fold down rear seats WITH the ski-bag, including mine.



anyone care to put a FAIL motivational poster in here?

If you have to, go surfer. Recline the front passenger seat and put your boards there.

I guess one thing people don't realize is that the fold down seat and ski pass things are optional. Not all cars have them. Inconvenient to some, but on the positive side, the chassis will flex less and there will be less rattles.

But considering the length from the front dash under the windshield all the way to the rear shelf under the rear glass is at least 6 feet, a board should fit with some creativity. I haven't personally tried with my board and E46 though.

Roof rack is the way to go. Less risk of damaging your interior from boards/skiis. Plus you get to fit more people in the car

Looking at the pics of your xi in the My Garage pics you dont have the cold weather package - your headlight don't have the washer door. Fold down rear seats are part of the package. You probably don't have heated front seats.

I would watch out with having a snowboard inside the cabin. i did it once and i was scared crapless of the sharp sides of my board cutting or creasing my leather. But my 158 fit in the back seat slanted
