I'm 6'2" with a 33 or 34 inch inseam. I have no problem fitting in the car with seat travel to spare. With the seat adjustments maxed out, I can't adequately and reliably work the full range of the clutch pedal with just my leg muscles. With the seats all the way back, I end up shifting in the seat or pointing my ankle to fully use the clutch. Also, with the seat all the way back, my shoulders leave the seatback if I turn the wheel 180 in one motion. Two indicators its too far back.
I opted for the sun roof because of my height. It was a good idea. The driving instructor indicated that ideally, you should have four fingerspaces between your head and the inside of the roof. This is perfect for me with the sun roof. When I lean over to a spot where the sunroof doesn't cover, it's a pretty close fit.
I bought the LeatherZ door armrests. They're a sharp looking product. The foam is firm enough for long term support and the finish is great.
