The bigger third row/sliding door/wish-it-was-an-XVan need is
analogous to "needing" a 5 bedroom house, as empty nesters,
in case everyone you care about on the planet, shows up at once
about every two years...

Third row seat? Isn't it the area where the energy from a rear impact would have been absorbed? And you want me to put there the most precious possession that I have and will never be able to replace? Forgive the guy who was rear-ended twice on separate occassions, once in '95 and the other time in '98 - I am still looking with paranoia in the mirror everytime I am the last guy at a traffic light!!!

On the other hand, maybe the BMW guys have come up with an acceptable solution for the energy absorbtion - folks, please enlighten me...

E70 X5's 3rd row is rated at 50mph impact. Anything more than that will be damage. And BMW is working to improve that in future cars.

Sometimes it is fun to look up old discussions...
