Yessss. I'm only 5'2 so I have to move my seat up a bit to push the clutch in and this has been my biggest complaint!

I got Iggee seat covers so these don't match anymore, otherwise I would have been all over these.

OFT! Just go ahead and budget for it when you purchase. No more torque dip.

Damn pretty cool.

It tears into my neck when I wear a t-shirt. Figured I would just have to live with it

The cup holders. I have never had to reach behind me to grab my drink in the drink holder console.
I'll never get over this. So awkward, especially since I'm short and have my seat way forward

I'm also short. I'm assuming tall people sit far enough back to have less trouble here. But let's be real. The 86 siblings are driver's cars. No drivers car can be built around the cup holders.

Adjustable pedals should be mandatory in all cars in my opinion.

Meanwhile, how about building up the pedal or one elevator left-shoe? Also, it is a known fact that women have small feet so they can stand closer to the sink.

Turning off engine on a push-to-start model results in turning off ALL electronics as well (including radio).

Valid point.

I heard the new Camaro's have the cup holders right behind the shifter, and you can't shift comfortably with a big drink in there.

I guess we don't have it so bad

Dang really? I'm only 5'4 and have no issues.

I think I use my clutch differently though. My brother is the same height, and I sat in his Civic SI and couldn't believe how far forward he had his seat. I think he flat foots the clutch. I only use the ball of my foot.

Mine was the same way, I had a ton of movement before my contact point


Until I did this from the DIY section

A pair of shorty wrenches made me love this car even more.
