Yes- on height

Yes. The height does work but they are still too low in my opinion. All the Audis I have ever driven including over 150 rentals per year around the Globe seem higher. Not sure why BMW is so much...

I am looking at a used 3 series and not sure if the Sport seats are the best option? For one thing, all the BMW seats seem to sit low (No high position adjustment). The Premium package seat feels...
