Only one complaint...

1999 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


After 3 years, only only complaint -
it is a BIG one - is that the left
bolster of the sport driver seat is
always uncomfortably pushing on my
thigh. I must either pull my foot
forward so that my thigh/knee are above
the bolster, and thus not in the way,
or keep my thigh on the bolster, where
I become so uncomfortable in only 5-10
minutes, I must find a new position.
If I straighten my left leg "within"
the seat (to the right of the left
bolster), my feet are in each other's
way and I can't properly/safely operate
the brake and accelerator pedals. BMW,
why did you cram the sport seat into
such a tight cockpit like this?

Best Features

Everything else, but this one complaint has really put a damper on my personal experience of this one model/trim BMW.

Worst Features

Make the cockpit a bit wider so that a driver of normal height and inseam length (6', 34") can drive a 3 series with a sport package in comfort for more than 10 minutes. I would gladly trade my sports seat for a "standard" seat if BMW would do so for a nominal fee.
