why isn't this in the four series

this is really a pain that there is no cubby hole in the door arm rest to help open and close the door..

i don't know about you but opening the door enough but not too hard to ding the next car is pretty hard without some kind of cubby hole in the door arm rest.. yes the curved handle works but not ideal

You should definitely write to BMW and share your feedback.

This forum is a collection of the best first world issues I've ever read and it's also the best source for needlessly elaborate discussions on extremely easy question like the monthly gas thread and the ever expanding DHP thread.

I disagree completely... it should be 3/8" shorter.

Why do my interior lights come on automatically when i open the door. I find it terribly annoying that BMW would assume that everyone likes that.............
Gas filler should be closer to drivers door so i don't have to walk as far.

I left my car in the rain while away on vacation for a week and now my brake rotors are rusted. Why doesn't BMW use stainless steel rotors on a car this expensive!

A bird pooped on my car. I think it is BMWs fault.

Just use the big cubby hole at the bottom of the door... I also find the grab handle a bit too far forward to open with control.

First world problem, but the solution is pretty easy.

yes im freakin serious!! the lack of handle on the inside of door makes it hard to control how much to open or how hard to open the door.. especially with a long door on the coupe it's really easy to ding the next car!!

yes it's a first world problem but it's annoying and it's the first car i ever had that has this problem

I just wrote to BMW NA and expressed my frustration with the company direction and BMW's mission statement overall. This is just a small representation of how detached BMW has become of its core enthusiast audience who make up the vast majority of BMW owners.

As performance drivers, we demand excellence in engineering and deserve nothing short of an "Ultimate Driving Machine." From the enthusiast-oriented 228i to the blood curdling i8 (oh boy I hope my wife doesn't catch me looking at pictures of the i8 again)...BMWs serve each and every driver differently.

That said, it's unacceptable that there is no door handle cubby closer to the rear of the 4-Series' door. The reach required to accurately modulate door opening angle and swing speed can not be appropriately judged. It's disgusting how such an oversight made it past the best automotive engineers in the world.

The worst part is thinking about what other shortcommings there might be missing.

A strip to your local upholstery shop can solve this:
