6' 1" 188LBS here, no problem. BUT, if you don't want your vision through the windshield cut off at the top (limits view of stoplights when close, for example) then I SERIOUSLY recommend some lower seat rails.

6ft isn't tall so yes you'll fit

most I would push comfortably is 6'2", although some say 6'4" and like the feel of the car...

Is there a well-regarded kit to lower the seat? If you lower it, will it not be even harder to get out of?

Backyard Special Seat Rails work with stock seats, lowers by 20mm

I am 6'5 about 215 lbs and fit fine. It's not something I'd want to go cross country in but it's doable. The knee room to manipulate the clutch is my tough spot.

Passenger side floor pan is a lot more shallow and am hosed on that side, but that's relatively irrelevant if you own the car.

Im 6` 2"/250lb and just about the biggest you would want to be to fit comfortably in the s2000. I have no problem with it what so ever.

Funny thread even if it's a legitimate question. I'm 6ft 1in with long legs and it fits me perfectly. But get this, my cousin is about 5ft 10in and said he felt like he had no room (of course I didn't let him actually drive, just sit, because he's a maniac) so I guess it comes down to trying it out and seeing how you feel.

If you find that you have an abnormally long torso and very short legs that don't allow you to fit, you can always lower the seating stance with some nice bucket seats. I'm 6'1'' and some recaro pole position seats really lowered my seating position. felt a lot nicer to drive as well.

Old thread bump, Im 64 about 225-245 depending on winter or summer. Getting in and out sucks but once seated I love the feel.

haha Yeah. I mean, I fit in my Elise, but racing it is out because with a helmet, my head hits the top.

I'm 6' 190lbs and legs on the longer side. I also have backyard special low rails with oem cr seats pushed as far back as possible and the back reclined at a fairly neutral position. If I was even an inch taller I would think it would be a problem. As it sits, position to heel/toe is ideal, knees just barely clear. The steering wheel feels like a reach though, wish it would telescope or had an extender to bring the steering wheel closer to my body.

I'm 5'10 and with the stock seat, while I wasn't hitting the soft top, I still had to duck down to see if the light turned green etc. since the windshield frame is low. My main reason for switching to a bucket seat was to lower the seating position so it felt like I was sitting IN the car as opposed to on it.
