rent a car.

I know of people that will fed ex their gear when going on long trips. If money is not an issue, it is pretty convenient.

Doesnt the rear seat fold down?

Stick your boards in through the trunk in sideways between your front seats if they are that long.

Other than that your only option is to wedge them in the back seat area and maybe go up to the mountain with the top down lol...

According to a few google sales it looks like the 2003 has fold down rear seats, or atleast a fold down center section you could probably fit a board in...

Another option is to set them along the passenger side of the car with the passenger seat pushed forward and leaning forward...2nd rider has to sit in the driver side rear...shouldnt be too hard to get in with the top down.

I wedge my board in between the seats and the door. its a pain to climb over, but I've fit 4 people and 6 boards in my Jetta before.

also backseat to dash in between driver and passenger seat. hope you dont have a stick

thanks for the ideas.. ill have to try it out..

i dont think i want to rent a car because... well i just started to ride at the very end of this season and i went EVERY weekend for like 6 weeks in a row.. lol renting a car would get kind of costly.. maybe i can move some stuff around.. try to squeeze them in on an angle or something..

taking the bindings off always help....
if ur backseat doesnt fold down...try sicking it between the driver and passenger...tho it makes shifting a bit trickier.

we've stuffed 4 boards and 3 adults in a g35 sports coupe before...along with boots and our luggage for a 3 day trip.

Yea worst case you have to take everyones bindings off and put them back on at the mountain...then you can put the boards just about anywhere...
Just dont forget the screw drivers!
