Peter, Yes, I too found this annoying ....but an advantage when there are two of us in the front as the passenger can operate the driver's window for her/him while she/he is fumbling with the money. The one thing I miss from my previous car ( Passat) was the ability to close up the windows after turning the ignition off or when locking the car.
