I can fit my 32 kg golden retreiver in the footwell of the passenger seat with my wife sitting on it (I mean the seat of course), without occupying the luggage compartment and folding the backseat down.

Unless you have telescopic or folding clubs this is a big no. You can get two bags in the back by folding down one seat.

Most fun on 4 wheels.

Frankly, I am looking for a possible solution to carrying a baritone saxophone (Selmer Mark VI) in the hatch without folding down the seats. I can get a tenor and an alto in there with no problems, but there doesn't seem to be a way to angle things even in a gig bag (much less a regular case)

Muprhy's take on Rallyes: Measurements will always be expressed in the least useable units. Velocity, for example, will be expressed in furlongs per fortnight.

Do you have a flight case, gig bag or a standard case?
I don't have my Mini yet but I bet with a nice compact (form fitting) flight case you could get your Bari in. I too am a Saxophone player. I have a Selmer Super Balanced Action (40's) Tenor, a 47 King Zepher Special Alto and a chepo Wexler Soprano. Still waiting to get a Baritone. Came close to a Yamaha-62 a few times but never laid down the cash.

Take it easy,
Eric
