My 2007 E-Class trunk could be opened and closed from inside the car as did my 2006 Lexus LS. I fail to see the safety issue. The deck will stop if there is any resistance. The owner's manual is...

Is this delay at all VPC's?

While I see no official reason is given, if it is just the 535i xDrive models, the tire excuse fits pretty well. That model is suppose to have 18" all season...

Took me two days to get used to R and D. Not a problem for me. Valet parkers know what to do. My friends and family on the other hand are often perplexed.

I have the washers on my cars for many years. I question whether they really do anything. I can't imagine them really getting snow/ice off or even cleaning the salt that much.
