    Default Sports seats - 360

    As some of you know i'm not far off the size of a midget (i'll argue that i'm taller than TonyH but may lose that argument)

    Anyhow, if I bought a car with sports seats how easy are they to raise up so that I can actually see over the steering wheel?

    I'll be the only one driving the car so no need for constant adjustment. When I come to sell it i'll need to faff about again lowering them so I have to take this into consideration too.

    Thanks

    It has been known that certain CS members have washers/shimms/spacers under their Stradale seats!

    Seriously, with sports seats, you really do need to ensure you can maintain good visibility over the dash.

    I would consider just spacers underneath the seats - cheap but effective

    MLT / Hazy....????

    (Adz. Sounds like a plan, do as Jules has suggested. Also easily reversible)

    If you're not wedded to the Ferrari items, the Cobra Misanos I have are very comfy and are slightly higher than standard.
