M3 coupe cargo space + wildfire

Hey just a quick story. Earlier today I was evacuated because of the Springs fire in Hidden Valley and Camarillo, CA it has burned over 28,000 acres near my house. I had a police officer come and knock on my door to say I have 5 minutes to get out we are closing the area. Quickly I threw all my worldly possessions into the trunk of my e92 m3 and sped away.

With both seats down you can fit a lot of stuff in the back and I'm thoroughly impressed with the cargo capacity.

Just a cool story I thought I would share

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of the trunk with all my stuff in it...I was in a slight hurry

Hope the fire skips your house. I moved to another state with all my stuff packed into my E92. This car can fit a ton of stuff no problem.
