From the crushed picture above your Jetta seems smaller than my Sante Fe – but I’ve hauled at least that much or more in my Sante Fe. With the seats folded down (the front seat does not lay flat) I can rest the boards on the dash and get quite a lot in. I do this quite often because when I do get a chance to go the hardwood yard, I take every advantage and get as much as I can. With that said, my Sante Fe is one model that the rear window opens – so I can stick a little out that if I have to. I also make sure that I bungee cord the stacks together and I put a piece of ply between the passenger seat and my center console so that if the boards shift in transit – I have a little protection from in. I also tie the read window latch to the boards to keep it from flopping in the air stream. Of course most of my boards are cut to 8 foot by the yard – they only sell the 10 footers in 8/4 size and I seldom use 8/4.

I also would like to know where you plan to store 100 bf in an apartment. That’s a lot of lumber!
