Wow, thanx for the input!

slide the drivers seat all the way forward.
lean in through the rear door on the driver's side.

on the inner rail of the driver's seat - closest to the center of the car, there should be a metal clip at the back of the rail.

take a screw driver or something and pop this clip out. your seat will now slide back an additional 2" or so.

i'm 6'6" and this made all the difference.

Let me know, there is a way

The M5(at least in Canada) has the comfort seat option AND the active seat option available--exactly the same as on the 7 series with the wider seats ,articulating backrest, and the moving bladders in the seat bottom--only difference is the leather(front and back) is buttery soft on this M5 option like the "individual" seats. They are absolutely wonderful! Glad I had them spec'd. Something to consider if you are still waiting for a "build" I am 5'11-220lb-NO Problem! Ciao JP

Driver's seat is the most uncomfortable I've ever had. I am 6'1-230lb. My hip bones hit the side bolsters. The bottom of the seat is only 12" across. Bad news when your M5 hurts
your ass before you leave the driveway! Serious problem. Any
other big drivers experience this?
