I know right? Rookie move!

Just think of what she could do with my convertible

Installed adjustable rear toe arms so they can finally get my rear into proper alignment. Already installed adjustable camber arms, but they couldn't get toe into spec. Back to the alignment shop I go. Also replaced a leaky suction line on the power steering.

Is there a whole yard in there or just a half?
I wasn't there for the festivities so I have no idea how she got that in there, but it definitely had to be shoveled out. My guess it was all done by hand.

I know from experience that a yard will fit into the back of a Ford Focus wagon and the X is larger than that so I'm guessing it's at least a yard, probably more.

Which adjustable arms did you go with?

I found a set of camber arms from Russia or Latvia, can't remember which, they were on Ebay. Took a while to get them, but even with the shipping they were significantly cheaper than the one I could find that were domestic. Best thing and best price I could find for the toe arms was Megan Racing. Got those off Ebay as well.

Funny mention. I've moved things with my z28 convertible that wouldn’t be possible in a sedan including 27” tube tv in the box, 2 21” computer monitors in boxes and my favorite: Queen size mattress.

Being able to lower the roof to put a large item in that was far far too big to fit through a door in a sedan was used regularly with the z28.

The first thing I ever moved with my x5 was 1100# of flagstone.

The car was like one week old to me and the interior looked new so I did stop at a McDonald’s and get like 10 boxes from their recycle dumpster to line the inside.

I also did some googling to estimate the volume of 1100# of stone so I wouldn’t overload the car too much.

You should use this occasion to tell your wife about how nice it would be to buy a cargo trailer... or pay someone to deliver bark next time.
