Default Am I too tall for an S2000?

I'm 6 feet tall, will I fit in an S2000?
I know it sounds like a dumb question, but I've heard that it's designed for shorter people.

i fit, and i am 6 1......

but i would tell you to go and test drive one and make that decision for yourself.....

my definition of fit and your definition of fit are probably very different.......

Will you fit in one? Yes.

Will you be comfortable? Don't know.

I'm at 5'11" and my recline/seating position was maxed out and I was barely comfortable.

Im 6'5" and I can fit in my buddies and drive it. But driving it and driving it comfortably are two different. Ive room everywhere around me except for the majority of my right leg and I would be much more comfortable with the steering wheel about an inch higher. Im sure I look like a real goon in the car though

But by no means does it stop me from driving it. I just recently got my Integra out of the body shop and I didnt want to drive it....it paled in comparison to the overall feel of the S2000. If I could afford it Id buy an S and an aftermarket seat ASAP!

I'm 6'2" and 190~195lbs. and I fit. It takes some getting use to... but it is not uncomforatable. I just can't lean the seat back as far as I can in my Civic.

Get the hardtop though... it offers more head room!

I have thought about getting different seat rails that sit lower or a Bride low max seat... but eh.... that cost money.

if i were you i would go at least sit in one first, a couple of my friends that are 6 feet or taller did not seem to "fit" in the s2k, im 5'7" and i think i fit perfect, seems like it was designed for people my size, the steering wheel sits really low for taller people also

It's all about the proportion of your body (as in what's the length of your upper body and your legs.)

Someone who is 6' could fit in a S2K nicely doesn't mean another 6' person could.

6'1" here and I fit fine. The only problem is when I'm at the front of the line at a traffic light I have to duck down to see the light if the top is up. But who drives around with the top up anyway.

there are a ridiculous number of threads on this

i'm 6'3'' and 230 lbs. (when i'm working out a lot) - right now probably down around 210-215 - i daily drive mine

i also have an accord which i have driven probably less than 10 times since i've owned my s (6-7 months) - i'll probably be selling it soon

it does get fairly uncomfortable for longer drives (1 hour plus) but that isn't just becuase of being tall, everyone starts getting uncomfortable around that time because the seats don't have much lower back support

but go take one out for a test drive...i fit fine w/ the top down or up

you can also get lowered seat rails to lower you down anywhere from 1/2" to about 2" i belive
