paplip is an unknown quantity at this point
Is there a kit which would allow me to have acces to the trunk from behind the armrest of my 98 528i?

If I put the armrest down and look behind the leather flap, there is a rubber padding pre-cut to the size of what could be a little trap that would allow me to open so I could carry my ski and hockey stick.

Thanks.

My older 5er has (had) the same opening you are talking about. Behind the insulation, there is a perforated piece of metal, matching the insulation. Careful removing of this panel will get you access to the trunk. Hope this helps...

If your car has that feature then you can access the trunk by simply tilting the back of your seats towards the front.

I have a 1997 528i and you needed to purchase a special package that the manuel referrs to as a ski package. It had a rectangular cutout when you removed the armrest for skis, or in your case hockey sticks to poke through. If your car doesn't have this you would need to cut the rear seat sheet metal (behind that foam rubber insulation). I did it on mine to help the subs make it into the cabin through the ridiclous biemma insulation.

Thanks, that is what I wanted. I didn't know that the skibag package could be purchased.
