    How big of a box?

    6' 2.8" here. And was pleasantly surprised with the headroom on a "small" car.

    6'3" with short legs. The only reason I'm chiming in is because headroom on the '15 was a selling point for me- base of course. Hey, I like hats more than sunroofs.

    I'm 6'4" and I sit proper, so for most people I apparently sit "super close" and I apparently "don't know how to drive" because my seat-back is not reclined at a 35 degree angle.

    Nuvolari reclined. In any case I don't think the angle is going to make anyone here quicker. On the bright side, modern cars are huge so nearly nobody has to recline any more.

    OTOH sitting upright now has limited utility also. It's crucial to be able to see over yumps (there are none...) and to wrestle the wheel (there's power steering...).

    All this got me thinking: I'd rather recline. In the passenger's seat. I'd rather be driven around than drive at this stage.

    LOL huh? I understood about 50% of what you said.


    I was referring to not driving like this (how 75% of my friends drive).



    It appears as though I sit close, but technically even sitting as close as I do I'm still about an inch further back than I should be. With my shoulders planted, my wrist still does not rest on top of the wheel, but rather the very edge of my palm/thumb/area directly adjacent to the wrist. Mainly, this is due to the fact that I'm 6'4" and any closer my knees would literally be touching the dash. My wheel is as high and as far out as possible in this car, and somehow still much better than the majority of the cars that I've ever driven (with the exception of my old range rover and any 'real' sports car I've ever had the privilege to drive).

    My seat isn't upright, I don't bend that way... it is reclined, but not like the real ass mofo OG in the above photo.

    ...most of my friends are gangster leaners and/or bottom grabbers. A few take it one step further and do the gangster lean, but instead of keeping their hand at the center of the wheel they push even further so their left hand will be at like 1 o'clock.
