It's got the S4 suspension at least. I was looking hard at an S4 but that V8 is a thirsty engine.
I obviously could make it work with skis on the inside, but I don't want to do that. It's not as big in the back as a lot of you think too. Something like 150-160cm long with the seats folded down. Where all my skis are in the 185-190's. I don't want to have to deal with ski tips up by the gear stick. So I want to put them on the roof.
Aslo I haven't found the ski bag. I haven't really look for it either as I'm not really interested in putting skis inside the car. I found the first aid kit, so i'll look for the ski bag now.
My problem is finding a box that doesn't interfere with the hatch opening and can hold 4 pairs of fat skis.
I like the Thule Sonic Alpine, but the fit guide says it's too big. basically anything over 160cm is too big,
I can deal with a little bit of interference but I'm hoping someone has done the leg work to find out which box is best.
Leaning towards the yakima lopro titanium, but it says will only fit with the cheaper ugly crossbars, not the whisper bars.
