2012 BMW X3: These Pedals are too Close

September 21, 2012

The gas and brake pedals in our 2012 BMW X3 are too close together for my feet. A contributing factor to my disapproval is that I tend to brake with the inside of my foot. See the above picture and look at the degree of gas pedal overlap. I tried to retrain myself to use more of my foot in the picture below. But there is still significant overlap.

Maybe it's all my fault. Maybe these 11EEs shouldn't be allowed inside of a car. Maybe I don't know how to drive. But I'd like to think I'm not alone on this one.
