Trunk Dimensions?

Does anyone have trunk dimensions taken with the rear seats not folded down? (width, depth, height) Taking Euro delivery in June and I am trying to get a sense of how much luggage we can squeeze in the trunk. If anyone has an opportunity to take a quick measurement it would be greatly appreciated!

It's about 13 cubic feet - a couple of US carry-on sized roller bags and ancillary bags (two or three backpacks worth) will fit just fine.

I would rather have seen a smaller trunk and more room for the back seats.

If they put the back seat any further back then your passengers would have a wheel well jabbing them in the side. They can get away with the wheel wells intruding on the trunk space, but it wouldn't work so well with them intruding on the back seat.

Cool! I may have seen your pick-up time on the bimmerfest calendar for that day. I am at 9:20 AM so may see you there.....can't wait. Here is what I have found thus far on measurements:

Height: 16.5" lowest point
Width: 37" between wheel wells and 53.5" behind wheel wells
Depth: ????

Would love to know the depth of the trunk with the back seats up if anyone has some quick time to measure..

I am trying to avoid another trip to the dealer to measure or even bring my bags for a trial run as I live fairly far away from my dealership.

Thanks! This definitely helps.....any chance you can measure the depth of the trunk from back seats to the end of the trunk?

With 2 adults and 2 kids on the Euro Delivery we may be maximizing every inch of that trunk!

It's about 35" deep by 37" wide (between wheel wells -so there is some extra storage as you move closer to the back of the car) by about 18" high.

Damn, looks like I'll be putting one of our hard cases in the back seat. Glad I packed my comforter! Everyone thought I was crazy for bringing it, but who's the crazy one now?!?! *eye twitch*

Sorry to bump this old thread but I'm desperate to find the boot dimensions of the coupe! My local dealer has no coupes at the moment that I can measure. I am only after one measurement and that is the height of the boot from it's highest point ie from the 2 runners on the side of the wheel wells to the top, it's was mentioned in this thread the height from the lowest point is 16.5" I just want this measurement from the highest point I need to slide in a box 15.6 high by 35 wide it needs to slide all the way through the opening with the seats Down and sit on the 2 little runners either side of the wheel wells 15.6" in height this literally decides weather I ger a 1 coupe or not as I need to fit this box I'll happily make a paypal donation to anybody can give me a accurate measuement of the boot height at it's heights point
Regards
Mark
