    Front seat comfortability

    Hi All,

    So I've had my 5th gen for a little while now and while I love the way it drives it still feels quite cramped "vertically". I have to tilt the back of the seat really far so that I can fit my head in without it grazing the roof. Having it tilted back this far really isn't the most comfortable (personally) and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas that might help.

    Really I think I need to get seats that are a bit closer to the floor just for that extra bit of clearance. Realistically I'm only talking about maybe 2cm in height extra that I'd need. I do currently have the leather seats and I was wondering if the cloth seats are any lower to the floor or would in any way help give me that extra clearance. Aftermarket would be an option I suppose, but most seem to be those bucket seats with massive side bolsters that might make it more uncomfortable for me.

    Anywho, let me know if you have any ideas (that don't involve me having my torso surgically re-sized :P)

    cloth seats are basically the same height, one way you could go is to put in s2k seats as they actually lower the seating position in the car

    i didnt quite have that problem as my head was pretty clear from the roof, but was a bit tall on the lowest position.

    ive seen that s2k seats make it slightly lower, and are easy(ish) to put in

    just gotta find the right ones at the right price, then swap the base lol

    easy met

    stick your seats in an oven for half hour, will make them bit bigger for a while (science)

    I'm roughly 6ft myself and I have to lean the seat back a fair bit.

    Personally I don't mind it. S2000 seats could be the best option if you need to go a little lower.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I've finally found a seat position that works alright for me Now I dare not move the seat in any way, lest i lose the perfect position.

    I used to make all the passengers go through the passenger side to get into the back (still do in my current car, because the fucking seats dont go back to normal position) so I never lost my position lol

    No one else drives the car except the missus, but even then really I don't mind
