Power Window switches

I just test drove a 325 and I know that the switches were moved to the drivers side window. However when I test drove it, it was a really hot day and I forgot to take a look at it. Question is, are they easily accessible? I drove a c230 and it was really low on the drivers door. If I had to open a window, I had to move my leg. Also, I heard that the switches are small, any experiences? Thanks!

I just don't like how the door's armrest dip forward near the window buttons. I used to always open the rear windows on accident and have to stretch a bit to reach the front window buttons. I'm used to it now though.

If you have the seat way back, the drivers door window switches may be a bit of a reach for you. I would prefer to have then moved about one inch to the rear.

The passengers door window switch is blocked by the door pull handle and causes one to contort their hand oddly to get to the switch. Bad design.

Same here. Also, I can't adjust the side mirrors without reaching forward from normal driving position which kind of defeats the purpose. The car is designed for Texans.

Yeah, justed today I opened the rear window instead of mine when I pulled up to pay at a parking garage. They need to be a tad further back. Oh well small price to pay.

I know you're intentionally let the passenger behind pay the parking.

They are a little far forward, but I prefer them on the door instead of the center console like they used to be. I think maybe they could have kept the rear controls on the center console though...
