    Question lowering driver seat

    Anyone modified the driver seat height? I`v got a EX coupe with a sunroof,I`m 6`2 and my hair touch the top all the time, I need to get the seat lower than it`s standard adjustment.

    Wow, I'm 6 feet even, all meanness, and my head doesn't even come close. A few ideas for ya though: 1. get a haircut 2. keep the sunroof open all the time 3. cut a piece of the headliner out. I know, I know.....

    Seriously, look underneath the seat and it doesn't look too feasible to lower it. Maybe you could let some air out of the tires.....just thought of that one too.... I really wish that was the only problem in my life and I don't say that to minimize your issue at all. Let us know what you come up with.

    Not to play like you haven't tried it, but have you used the manual adjustment lever? I am 6'3" and when I initially got in the car my head hit the top, but a quick adjustment using the lever on the lower left of the seat made all the difference.

    You should fit. Im 6'2" and I fit with plenty. I do wish it was lower though. I'm used to the tiburon and camaro. A more low sitting seat. But can't win them all

    I'm 5'11" and my hair touches with it lowered all the way. Maybe the headliner is lower on cars with the sunroof because of extra bracing?

    Yes, on the cars with motorized sunroofs/moonroofs, the headroom is reduced. The tracks and drainpan have to be somewhere.
