I do, but only because I'm 6' 1"

Otherwise, my hair would start scraping the ceiling!

5'10" / seat at it's lowest position - then I tilt the front of the seat up just a tad. I'm obsessive complusive like that. I feel like if I drive around jacked up any higher, something bad will happen.

I'm 6'6, so I pretty much don't have any other option. Even with my seat all the way down, I have to lean back a bit to be comfortable.

Is the lowest position on convertible seats higher than others ?

I keep getting the impression that my seat isn't going down as far as it should at the rear (cushion part). I don't want to be sitting so my eye's are just above the door level but I'm sure it should go another inch or so lower, any way of checking ?
I'm 5'11, didn't quite make the 6'

Thanks,
Stuart.
