Default Promaster front door windows

I had to go the welding store for some stuff today, and saw more Promasters than I think I have seen total before today.

When I was sitting at a stoplight next to the first one that I saw, I noticed the front door window setup for the first time. Two windows, looked like only the rear one opened, with a very wide divider support with a bunch of blackout on the edges of the glass. Don't know why I never noticed it before. The other ones I saw were similar, but on some the divider looked narrower, or at least less visible.

For those with Promasters, does the setup block any view or limit fresh air from the window? It looked like it might block the mirror a bit depending on where the seat was set.

Mr. Bonz thinks it's adequate.

Kind of begs for the old fashion crank open window vents.

Just a side note. Was out and about yesterday driving across town and back. Saw 14 Transits, all commercial with markings etc. (had to start counting after I saw 4 real quick)
Saw 1 Sprinter FedEx van, VERY dirty, and 2 Promaster vans, (definitely standout)

Having ridden in a PM, I really like the window setup in the doors, not to mention those great mirrors! Too bad the wing windows don't open either power or manual. I used to like flipping them open and having them directing the wind right to me on cooler days

The window that moves doesn't travel all the way down. That's a little disappointing the first time you find that out.

For me, the bigger issue is that they should have mounted the passenger mirror a little higher by about 2 inches. As it is, the driver mirrors are great but I can only use about 2/3s of the lower passenger mirror as it is obscured by the van body looking out those vent windows.

Are you serious? I don't know how many times I have had to lean out a window to fully reach an ATM, a ticket grab or pay box. That would be a show stopper for me.

It sticks up an inch or so above the frame. But it's below the level of your arm rest. Toll booths and such are not an issue.
