Adjustable Brake paddle position?

We found the brake pedal to be too high up and too far to the left on our new C230K. When my wife steps on it, unless she raise her foot off the floor, she can only reach the lower right edge of the pedal and worse only the top of her toes reach the pedal. This we think is just too dangerous in panic mode ( should have noticed this in those test drives, I know

Can anyone give us advice as to what can be done to remedy this situation? Buy an extentioner ( is there such a thing?) or the pedal can actually be lowered and/or shifted a bit to the right?

Thanks for reading folks

I find the pedal to be too far to the left for heel and toeing. The pedal is not adjustable. A competent welding shop should be able to cut, fabricat and reweld an extension for you. However, this may cause a multitude of liability problems in case of an accident, and will void the warranty.
