How Much Luggage can you get in a 1 Series!?

Hi Folks,

Just a bit of fun, looking to get some opinions.

I'm soon to be going away to Italy for 12 days with the Mrs and her Parents. I have a 55 plate 1series Hatchback, and I'm driving us down to Gatwick from the Midlands (couple of hours probably with a tail wind.)

Anyway, I think we are going to struggle to get everything and everyone in the car, and I have suggested we get a roof-box, or better, that we borrow my Mom's X3.

My Mrs thinks we'll be fine without, and that we'll get three suitcases in the boot, and one in the back with her parents, whilst she has 4 sets of hand luggage holdalls at her feet, in the front.

I disagree. We're going to do a test run (deep joy) so we will find out soon enough.

What are your thoughts? Who do you agree with?

Cast your votes....

Take the X3. You will not fit that all in the boot of a 1 Series. And having a suitcase between your parents and luggage at her feet is annoying an uncomftorable. I had to have a cooler between passengers in the rear once when we went camping, and it was not fun as it slid around.
