How far back can you get the passenger seat?

Any other than me who think that the passenger seat can't get far enough back?
In the rare ocations when I'm in the passenger seat I want to take the seat even further back then it allows me.
I'm 6 foot and can't get the seat far enough back so I can stretch my legs :-(

Do you seem to be able to take the seat further back?

Depends how low or high you want to sit. Another pet peeve of mine with the BMW seat is that as you raise it, it goes forward (on a canted lift system). If you go low, is goes back further.

The 3 serries seats/lifts are more straight up and down, so you don't lose leg room likle in the 5 and 7 series. That sais, the GT and 7 are big, so it somewhat makes up for the loss.

My spouse is 6'4" and between lowering, reclining, and moving back, there is plenty of legroom.

Sorry to hear you are uncomfortable, but what the heck are you doing in the passenger seat??!

Ha ha ha, you are right, I don't belong there.
I'm very comfortable in the seat, I was just surprised that I couldn't get the seat further back.
