Console/dash storage space E65 vs F01

Anyone know if there's enough storage space in the F01? Compared to my E66, the console is much smaller and there appears to be no dash drawers. Where do you put your sunglasses and other stuff. Is the glovebox the only other place to store stuff besides the console?

The F02 is my first BMW, so I can't comment on how much space the console of the last model had. I do wish this had a deeper console. I also think the phone cradle setup could be much more slimline than what it is now. In regards to sunglasses, I keep mine in the mini glovebox between the door & steering wheel.

Console in center armrest is smaller, but you can fit at least 2 pairs of glasses in the storage compartment to the left of the steering wheel below the light switch.
Also, if you remove the ash try (it's just an insert), that creates another storage compartment behind the door in the center console below the HVAC controls.
