Is it just me...?

Hey all,

Long time reader, first time poster. Just took my first test-drive of the MZ3. It was a Sport GT cloth with auto. Loved it. Will probably buy it. I've had my eye on this car since the Sportif concept was unveiled. One thing that I did notice that I found slightly disconcerting was the close proximity of the gas pedal to the brake. Maybe it's just my fat feet, and my big shoes, but I did notice my foot clipping the brake when moving to the gas. Anyone else notice this? Also, anyone know where the tape deck would be installed if you opted for it?

I didn't notice the closeness of either pedal to one another - I've got small, but wide feet ^_^ 8.5EE.

What I did notice was that the gas pedal seems to hide behind the center console which requires your leg to brush against the back edge of the center console and your foot to rotate slightly to access and depress the gas pedal. On long trips that can be tiring and you can possibly get some nasty scratches if you're wearing shorts or short socks...
