Default another weird doohickey

Why is this on the back of the B-pillars? It looks like a clothes hook, but surely there's no way to use it for that--unless you put the window down and let half the hangar flap in the breeze?

Has anybody figured out a use for it?

Yes, there's one on each pillar, Gene. You could definitely string a clothesline if you were doing a Grapes of Wrath remake with a K900 instead of a Hudson. :-)

You are probably right, Dave; I certainly can't of anything better. It could be covered in the manual; there's such a brick of material there that I'm not even halfway through it all.

Well, coincidentally, I was just browsing over Doug Demuro's YouTube channel and saw this Bentley review:


At about the 5:00 mark, he remarks on the wonderful luxury of the coat hooks on the rear of the B pillars! So I guess we know for sure now.

He's also very impressed with a lot of the other wonderful things you get for $375,000, like soft-close doors... :-)

Doug did a K900 review, but it was pretty disappointing. He got hold of what must be the most stripped down K900 that was ever sold in the US, and mocked it for a lack of features. I wish he would have reviewed a model with the VIP package.

Yes! I saw that one, Zathras. It was absolutely one of his worst.
