2008 BMW X5 4.8i: I Put A Bed In the Back
April 21, 2008
"No it won't."
We were both right.
Yesterday after much debate with my wife, I drove our long term BMW X5 to the bed store and bought our three year old daughter her first big-girl bed. But there was no way I was going to pay the $100 delivery fee, so down went the X5's seats and up went its tailgate. Sure the mattress and box spring were sticking out a bit, but not enough to be a problem...
At least that's what I was going to tell the officer.
Still, the last thing I wanted to do was deposit the Merilux Comfort Firm Twin into the middle of Sepulveda Boulevard, so the ride home was slow and steady. I avoided the freeways for obvious reasons, and made it home without drama or police interference.
So the next time somebody accuses the BMW X5 of not being a useful SUV, you tell them to see me.
