touring/wagon owners, measurements of tailgate, cargo area?

Hi guys.

I'm looking into buying a wagon and need a bit of help. Can someone tell me the dimensions of the tailgate opening, the minimum height inside, and the depth with the rear seats down? I can't find this info anywhere, and appreciate the help.

yours,
PFJ

I know this SN from elsewhere. Miata.net, H-I, Houston Miata Club, bimmerforums...can't remember. Anyway I went outside and took some quick measurements for you.

My name is Riaz....I dunno we know one another.

Length is ~67"s to the rear of my seat. Minus a few if you have the seats all the way back.

Cargo door dimensions:



Limiting width where the backseats fold:

Good job SexualChocolate -- I was going to do this, you saved me the trouble (besides, the wife has the touring at work today, so I wouldn't have been able to do it until she got home).

Thanks. The E39 guys have had something like this for their tourings for quite some time, so should we.
