I have long, beautiful legs. No but really, I have leg room issues more often than I have helmeted head hitting the ceiling issues. Also I slouch.

Which TCT did you go with? I'd like to go Billman, but I'm not sure I have enough working space to pull out the pin on the side (there's a supercharger in the way).

I went with Ballade, because Billman requires the core to be sent ahead of time from Canadians. I'm sure Billman would've been fine, and the price was better IIRC, but I just couldn't wait (and shipping costs from Canada are expensive).
If I were in the US, I'd have gone Billman.

Get that thing out of there.

My Ballade TCT eventually turned into a massive cascade failure when it failed.

I recommend Billman; no others. Maybe OEM for a not-super-long-term but works fix.

Many thanks - thankfully, it's winter so the S2000 is in storage - I'll have to see about shipping my core to Billman!

You are built differently. I am 6'2", I have leg room issues in almost every car, and the majority of convertibles I have sat in I generally end up looking over the windshield when I am driving. The BRZ is perfect, and I was in a friend's Fiero at one point and there was tons of space. If I didn't love lightweight fun to drive cars I would be driving a minivan or a luxury SUV.

ďYou are built differentlyĒ. I resemble that remark Sir! How do you know it is not YOU who is built differently?!
Haha just joshin ya
However Iím built, Iím glad itís different enough that I get to fit well in three of the most fun cars Iíve ever owned! Of the three though, the BRZ does have the best seating position for me.
