    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi At the sides of the boot in my F11 there are a couple of useful storage bins which are accessed by removing the carpeted panels behind the wheel arches.

  2. 1997 E36 cabriolet top storage cover not fully closing

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi Guys The top storage cover is not fully closing because some of the hood material does not fully detract into the storage area. Some of the material rests on the back behind the rear headrests and, consequently, the top cover does not fit snuggly down. Is there any adjustment that would...
  3. Overhead glasses storage?

    General BMW Discussions

  4. Dashboard storage?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Can I ask if there is meant to be a storage box below the stereo on f30 models? There seems to be a plastic lid which doesn't seem to open... I'm wondering if on some higher models this is extra storage space? Thanks Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Wheel & Tyre Storage Solutions

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    The idea of this thread is for Members to post their solutions to the problem of storing 2nd sets of wheels and tyres, usually winters/summers.

  7. Can anyone with an E91 measure this for me?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, I used to have an E91 but have changed to a F31. One of the useful features of the E91 was the storage net in the boot on the right hand side which was great for keeping bottles in etc as it was set away from the side of the boot. The F31 doesn't have this it just has a crappy net that...

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi, I'm going to be leaving the country for 6 months and wonder the best way to leave my convertible e46.

    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Hi, Just had a Westfalia detachable towbar fitted but can't figure out where the hitch is supposed to go when not in use. I understand there is a dedicated storage area beneath the boot floor but can't see anywhere obvious. There is one likely position, to the left, but it's a sloppy loose...
  20. E92 CD Storage - where?

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    This is a ridiculously silly question, but, I've just picked up a 2008 E92 and am delighted with it. In my last car, I kept a large stash of CDs in the centre console between the driver and passenger seat. However, in the E92 this isn't possible as there isn't space, which is fine, but I have...
