Any BMW 328i Coupe drivers? What gear fits in the trunk?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by pstyle, Apr 30, 2010.

  1. Hey Guys,

    I just bought a '09 BMW 328i Coupe and was wondering who else drives this car and what kind of amps will fit in this?

    I coming from a Mazda3 hatckback which fit my huge GK RBH410 perfectly but now I obviously have to step down to a 210 or something similar.

    Just want to see if anyone else has any experience with this car.

    I drive a BMW 325ic.
  3. Cool... can you give me some insight about what amps can fit in the trunk? 210's, 212's?

    I drive a 325ic but I transport my gear in my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Idon't think I could get much more then a small combo in the bimmer, maybe a 210 and sma;; head.

    I had a 325ic (convertable) for a few years. Because so much of the trunk was taken up by the top, I couldn't put anything big in there.

    No problem getting a 4x10 and other large items in the back seat...as long as the weather was nice and I put the top down.:bag:
  6. Yea I'm sure i'll miss the utility of my Mazda3 hatchback... but the beemer is sooo sexy.

    put a trailer hitch on it and I'll sell you my spare 12X7 dual axel enclosed scooter trailer. Haul the whole band and never worry.

    I have a 545, which is at the dealer today for some maintenance. It turns out that I got a 328xi coupe as a loaner. I like the 3 series coupe platform very much; if I were to buy another car right now, that would probably be the one. I must admit, though - the 328 gives up 100 horsepower to the 545, and I do feel it.

    I'm pretty sure this belongs in OT. Nice rides, though; my dream is to have a white 328i.
  12. No but seriously... gimme some loud compact 2x10 suggestions. Any Avatar B210 owners that can comment on its compactness?

    Actually, I do have a B210. It's neither large nor small as a 210, and I haven't tried to put it into the 3-series' trunk. It's a great cab though!

    why would you use a car like that to transport gear..!! You'll probably ruin the seats with heavy equipment which has these steel corners and what not that can tear it..!! you should get a used truck and carry a few 4x12's:bassist:

    I dig the 3's, but own a 540.

    Markbass 121 ought to fit.

    I bet you can haul a lot more in your Mini than he will be able to in his BMW. :cool:

    Drive what you want, especially if it's not your main gig transportation or you're not gigging, but it always makes me chuckle when someone buys a car and then realizes none of their stuff fits in it, especially when it's a car like a coupe that really can't haul anything at all.

    Hell, I took my upright with me when I was checking out cars a few years ago to make sure it fit before forking over the cash. Now it's nothing but wagons for me.

    I too have a 325ci and I haul a Bergantino IP112 + HT112 with ease along with a 4 space rack (PA Power amp), cable case, tool box, pedalboard, preamp, mic stand bag, and 3 basses.

    Man, I love cars, but being able to haul around a lot of gear is always a higher priority for me than having a nice car.

    My small station wagon fits our whole rhythm section - meaning, a 4x10, a 1x15, a 4U rack, two basses, my suitcase with cables/stands etc., the drummer and me. Oh, and a drumkit that has everything except for a second bass drum.
