Tailgate query

Post by Dollywobbler »

Quick question. Will a BX estate tailgate fit INSIDE a BX estate? Hoping to collect a replacement one next week.

turn it at an angle and yes - I fitted an XM hatch inside an XM hatch ... plenty of space too for other bits and pieces.

Thanks! Thought I'd check before committing. Could be embarrassing...
