    I never ride in the back, and hate to be a passenger, but what do you guys hear about the comfort of the back of the sedan? When I sit back there when the car is stopped, I am very comfortable. What do you hear from the rear seat passengers?

    Good for short rides, bad otherwise. Whoever sits behind me is screwed.

    Anyone over six feet tall won't be happy back there either.

    Fortunately, no one will ride w me (can't imagine why), so it's not much of a problem.

    But it is cramped back there.

    If you can get yourself settled in back there, it's not so bad if it's not for a long time. Moving around and changing positions ain't a picnic... and neither is ingress/egress.

    Best regards,

    Well, at least it's not previous generations 3-series or IS-bad. Woe be to the adult sitting behind me with my long legs, though! Luckily, I have only a little one who sits behind me, and he's comfy as long as he's got his iPad in his hands.

    Have a car seat and a booster seat in back so adults rarely ever sit back there. Had my mother in law in back for a trip to the airport recently and had complaint on comfort, but she noted the loud exhaust note. Secretly I think she liked it. :-D

    Ha haa! I can't believe that it's that bad. I need to spend more time back there, but I would worry about the driver. You have to respect that much power. My wife, who is fairly short and has a bad back, likes to lay down in the back for long trips. Anyway it looks pretty inviting, but not as good as in the Recaro driver's seat.

    There were 3 of us in my V1 on a 10,000 mile trip. Back seat room was fine.

    In the V2, it's fine unless I was sitting behind myself. Headroom with the Ultraview sucks but is plentiful without.
