I don't have a picture of it, but I once brought home a large package on the rear spoiler, leaning it up against the back glass. I ordered a large jogging stroller for my wife. Through DHL tracking I could see that it was in the local warehouse. It was Christmas Eve, so I realized it wouldn't get delivered until after Christmas.

So I stopped by the DHL office on the way home from work. They had the package and brought it out, and it was a **huge** box. No way I could have fit it in the back of the 930, even if I took the harness truss out. Even if I dismantled the box, the stroller would not have fit. And with it being Christmas Eve, they were closing early (1 pm). Not enough time to run home, swap cars, and come back with a sedan. And if I left it on the street, obviously it might not be there when I got back.

So I picked it up, leaned it on the back glass of the 930 knowing the rubber lip of the rear spoiler would keep it from sliding off, and drove home slowly. I figured if there was any day of the year I could get away with something like this, Christmas Eve would be it. I got strange looks from other traffic, but got it home just fine.
