    Are you sure those are electric power seats and not gasoline power seats?

    I'm surprised that a guy that tall would drive away with the steering wheel set that low. Its pretty much wedged between his knees.

    He seems to be using the mirrors and not a backup cam when he backs up.

    I wonder if the steering wheel adjusts.

    I suppose in 6 days we will all know.

    Probably just out of habit. I still use mirrors (rearview and side) when backing up in addition to the camera view. Camera view is usually distorted or fish-eyed, so can be deceiving at times.

    As rear backup camera is US federal government standard (not sure of other country standards) starting next year, surely the 3 has a backup camera.

    Of course it does. I know it tilts, but not sure if it telescopes or is manual or power adjustment.

    Because in that video there's a 2" gap above the steering column. It's definitely not fixed like that since it has been shown in numerous other pictures as being right up against the dashboard.

    The gap has changed between the column and the dash. In that video, the wheel is set quite low and the gap is large. Other images you can tell column is much higher and the gap is quite small.
