    Chair

    So here's my issue. I got a different car. Bmw and I am having issues with loading my icon. I went from a Honda Pilot to the Beamer. And I thinking i would like to go a different route. As I no longer have a lift. I am thinking a box frame tilite. Tr. any suggestions would be awesome.

    I don't quite understand what you're asking. Can you be more specific?

    And I am not sure if I want a box frame or a different type. I want a full welded frame no adjustability. Not even the back. Needs to be light. Solid seat pan and solid side guards.

    WHY are you having trouble loading your Icon into your Beamer? Is it the weight, or the shape, or what?

    I looked at a BMW once and couldn't get my TiLite ZR2 through the door opening because it was too small and was really far forward and the dash took up most of the opening. I've have no problem with any others, even some smaller cars like a jetta, forester, Toyota. I'd say the opening is probably about the same on those, just different orientation in the car? I have an Icon and wouldn't say it's is any different loading, maybe even a tad smaller with the narrower front, as my TiLite has no taper and fully welded frame

    I have a two door 323ci. It has plenty of room. The shape of the icon is what makes it hard and wieght. I have taken a lot of stuff off the icon trying to lighten it. I got the Beamer because it's lower to the ground. seats slide way back in it
