It looks the other way around actually: you've always advertised 5-door's utility for stuffing bicycles inside. And you shouldn't need a ladder.

Yes, I sometimes carry bicycles inside the car as well!

I have the dark windows. But no electric bicycle or moped. Only three human powered versions. I do like electric bicycles, the pedelec kind. I sometimes rent them abroad.

All right, I just happen to recall a discussion where you chose to avoid explaining why you chose to put them in rather than outside.

Why? I would absolutely reject the extra weight. Nor ready to admit I'd need assistance. Do you reasonable believe the electric stuff carries you rather than vice versa? Or is it just a relief to return to your true bicycles from abroad?

When pedaling on the lowest support setting, it feels a lot like normal bicycling, but you can go further, and climb faster or steeper. This makes it possible to take routes you would otherwise discard for being too tough. More sightseeing for the same effort, and you can keep up with stronger cyclists. It also makes it possible to arrive less sweaty, although I have not been using that option.

Some people would see it as cheating, but then again I think a 3 litre engine in the F20 is cheating! :-)

Regarding extra weight, take a look at the Orbea Gain D10. It is not THAT heavy.

And just to not stray too far away from the topic, here is a picture of the 3 cylinder BMW:

Sure it's an , sorry. I just have cycling memories: a few pleasant ones from my past.

My friend's dad owned a racing bicycle set up absolutely astonishingly well. I clearly recall the feeling of flying just above the ground when riding it. I don't think I'd need assistance or any weight of the bicycle at all to enjoy that.

The toughest route I took was a dedicated road cycling racing track. I recall it's length very clearly but can't share. The climbs were so steep I was concerned I'd fall down from there, just like vertical. I had to "cheat" by going side to side instead if straight up. Luckily there were no other riders by my side. But I didn't get off. And I feel pretty proud of that as it was really hard (my friend gave up on that amazing bike of his dad's, I used his heavier sporty one with a half of the gear set). Again, no help wanted. And I couldn't care less about stronger cyclists as I'm not competing: it's just for fun.

I'd like a picture with a cat!

These are prototypes from the manufacturer, And unfortunately they're no longer for sale. Your best bet is to find some used 513m wheels.

This is my recently acquired 125i, mineral grey with leather/sunroof. First BMW, unfortunately it has base audio which sucks bad - this was a demo though so it came that way .

What? Thanks for clarifying: it looks all black to me.

Hifi system, Alpine. I don't have it (I'd really hate them to disassemble my cabin and not ready to do it myself ) but, AFAIK, it's quite an improvement and the best(?) value for money - search around the forum for discussions.
