2012 BMW X3: Not Easy For Me To Get In

April 10, 2012

It's not easy for me to slide into the BMW X3's driver seat. You all know by now that I'm only 5'4" in height so I usually have the seat adjusted pretty far forward. I also need the steering wheel to be lower so my arms can comfortably and safely reach.

Combine that with the generous side bolsters on the seat cushions and I have an awkward time stepping up into the X3. It's probably not an issue for taller chaps. And I could push the seat back when I get out so that it is easier to get in.

But I just thought I'd mention it. If any of you or your wives are on the shorter side, this may bother you.

And by the way, those seats are not that tomato red color in person.
