The front seats could give you more of a squeeze, as could the two in the back. Same deal in the Audi. The Mercedes has them both licked on this, with buckety front seats and two moulded rears, which make the most of the four-seat layout. But after a while, you begin to appreciate BMW's puritan approach - you sit low, steering wheel just where you want it, head-up display keeping you focused and centred. Spend some time in the Audi, with your legs at 20 degrees to your hips in order to meet the offset pedals, and you'll be begging for the Beemer again.
