Lol, y'all kill me. Slide it all the forwards for her, and when you get back in, just slide it back. Pretty easy to make a mental note of where it was. I'm just saying that ruling a car out of a potential purchase because it was a manual seat over power is hilarious.

Everyone complains about how piggy the M2's are, but then aren't willing to compromise on any feature to actually save weight, it's ridiculous. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

Agreed. I hate power seats. I swear that each time I press the memory button on my wife's car, it picks a random new position instead of actually returning to any previous setting.

Manual seats are faster, lighter, and less likely to fail. I had a friend who bought a nice used 850i and it immediately needed something silly like $3k in repairs to the seat motors.
