When the E39 came with the window controls on the driver's door, I thought it was all over. But then the E46 surprised me with all 4 controls on the console. Hopefully, the Z4 will just be another little oddball in this way. It just makes so much sense to have them right there, near the shifter, the passenger, etc.

I dunno about other roadster owners, but when I had a 2.8, I would generally raise and lower both windows at the same time. Usually with the top too. This is why I like them co-located.

Even better of course, would be a Ron Stygar/Open Sesame button with raised and lowered both windows and the top simulatenously.

Yes, the E36 has a button that raises all four windows at once (though the top button is separate). Not sure why they didn't do the same on the Z3/4.

That's where we got the idea for the skunk (open sesame) switch.

I already open and close both front windows with one hand in the E30 and E46 everyday. Guess I have a big hand?

Not like it really matters in the E46, they're all one-touch anyways.

I love the response to it - love or hate. I'm seeing it tomorrow. I'll give Maldives a fair shot, but generally I prefer blues light or dark, not halfway. I'm dying to see a black one.

If the female employees are Bellevue BMW aren't attractive, will I not like the car?
