Yeah it does sit low.. I like that in that type of car though. I also didn't seem to notice until I tried to get out and vs my wrx actualy had to climb out of the car. Not unconfortably so, but noticeably so.
I'm 5'9" 190lbs.. wider shoulders and long arms for a short guy and a little soft round the middle.. fit me just perfect. I like it when the seat grabs ya and keeps you planted. Its one thing to slide the car around, its another to slide around inside it.
Just about every day in the wrx I'm using a knee against the door to keep my arse in the seat. Shouldn't have to do that in any car imho.
