    Is it just me or does anyone else find the door openings small / a strange shape? I'm on the tall side (6"3) and always find myself banging my back/shoulder on the inside of the B Pillar getting in. I've had 3 Series / 1 Series and C classes before and not noticed this. I know you generally adapt to new movements, but seems to be taking a while for me.

    6'3" is quite tall, but you probably never tried to get into a Model S? As a 5'9" person, I could tell you it is much harder to get into a Model S than a Model 3 even though the S is a bigger car. Model 3 seams fine to me like other similar size sedans.

    Sit in the seat first and then swing your legs in. It’s the only way I can enter the car and it works fine.

    Don't have the seat move as far back.

    Could you set comfort access to actually bring the seat forward to avoid the b pillar?
