    hey, I'm 6'4 too but there is enough room in the WRX, at least for me. I am comfortable in it. Go for it!

    Im not tall ,, just under six feet,,, but my seat is scooted up almost all the way so I think that you will have plenty of room..

    and as for head space there is also plenty of that for me, but i think it depends more on how you sit
    dude one time i tried to put the trailer bully into the coiler, and I got all messed up

    yeah im 6'3 and that was one of the many things i love about the wrx is the insane leg room they give u. my mother owns a honda accord and i barely fit in that when its all the way back and on my wrx i still have a room to move back from where i am right now
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

    Do nudists have nightmares of showing up to class fully clothed?

    6'5 6'5 here in a 05 sti. Plenty of room I move the seat up for more control. My dad is 6'9. His legs are a little on the cramped side but other than that there enough room

    i'm up there too, 6'1. I wish the steering column was telescopic as I like to sit forward for aggressive driving so I have a better feel and more leverage on the wheel... My knees constantly hit the belly cover of the steering column though and it drives me nuts during the heel/toe jazz. I have to compromise, back just far enough to avoid whacking my knees, but upright enough to maintain properly bent elebows for aggressive driving.
