and the 190E is quirky too:

- why are the wing mirrors different sizes. i assume for better visibility, but' strange.
- if you have a passenger wing mirror with a motor in it...and you wire it to a switch in the center console...why can't you motorize and wire the drivers side too instead of making me adjust it with a manual lever?
- do i really need to be able to adjust the height of the power antenna?
- Lastly....why is the shifter assembly made of 217 parts, most of which are small? maybe they could have made the shift feel of the Getrag 265 more like the M3, and less like rowing your hand through solidified oatmeal. no wonder people don't make SSKs for the 190e.

yeah. it's a strange beast. but I still love it. ;-)
