Im not sure if this was talked about before in previous threads. Though I though it may help some people to get an idea how they may fit in some cars.

Luckily living in the tri-state area I get to make it to the NY auto show at the Javits Center. I already knew that I should not have a problem fitting into my new WRX getting a chance to sit in the car during previous auto shows. I also got to try out a few cars just for fun being 6'4 and climbing out of a Smart for two and Mini.

Anyway I'm coming from a 94 Firebird and even though it may look uncomfortable I was able to make sever road trips in that car with out any problem. I tried out the WRX today before I placed the order just in case. I have to move the seat all the way back but after I find that correct position of the steering wheel I know I fit. Also there was more then enough headroom.

What car do you have/had and how did you fit in them. Has anyone switch their seats and did it fit better/worse?

I'm short at 5'6" so I fit in everything lol. Although I will say I like the seating position in my WRX better than in any other car I've owned (mostly Honda/Acura).

5'4" 140lb(on a bad day) for me =( Drive a 2005 WRX. Seat is at the 2nd/3rd notch closeted to to the steering at the highest position.
Only problem I have is occasionally the lower-mid back support, bulge, thing(For the life of me I cannot remember what thats called) can be a little uncomfortable, just occasionally. Sitting with a "perfect driver" position helps, so I'm always up right and ready to drive fast <--- not good, too tempting =(

I'm 6'4", mostly legs. With the seat back and all the way down (don't forget that adjustment!), I fit perfectly, with about 8" of headroom.

I'm 5'9" ,190 lbs.No fitment issues here.I use the wrist joint on steering wheel method to adjust distance of the seat to the steering & there is a lot of space for my wife to sit right behind me.

Its not a limo but it has a lot more space that many other cars.
