Who else thinks the Driver's side window controls are a bit too far away?

Wife complains of this but only on the e92.i got used to e90 but I know what u mean. My issue is always hitting the center console With my right hand for window controls because I was far to used to the e46. I like that better actually. Kinda felt Japanese when they took it away

They seem fine to me, you guys must be short. Funny I think my other car's controls are too close.

Im always hitting the rear window by accident. Wish controls were on center console like E46. While I'm complaining, I also hate door lock button in the middle of the dash.

I was just thinking the same thing about the shifter for my DCT. It feels just a tiny bit too far away. I usually like to drive with my right hand on whatever shift knob is on the cars I drive. But with my E92, it's a little too far forward.

Lucky for paddle shifters

I'm 6'2" and I am always hitting the rear switches instead of the front. I always thought it was because I was tall and had my seat back so far.

This is either an e92 issue vs. you guys are all short vs. you all sit with your seats like all the way back. I have never had an issue with those controls being too close and I'm 5'10". Confused!

if you were short, then wouldnt your seat be up closer? which would be easier to reach for the front windows. im pretty tall and always roll my back down, they are way to far.

Yeah I didn't have an issue in my E92 (in terms of feeling that the switch was too far away), but in my E93 I'm always putting down the back windows (or at times the "all windows" by accident.
