    Default RSC seating for 183 cm'er

    G'day all.

    Back in the mid 90's I worked in France for 12 months or so and had the great pleasure of driving a 1750cc Clio 16S (S for soupapes, valves in French) for most of that time, clocking up about 30k kms from the Netherlands to Spain ; what a little goer that car was ! Accelerating away from a péage it could juuuuuust out-accelerate a 206GTi 1.9, which always bought a smile to my dial !

    Anyway, I'm contemplating the purchase of a new 172/182, but I find the seating position doesn't allow me to stretch the legs out at all, and I'm wondering how taller owners of RSC's find the driving position after a few hours ?
    I don't seem to remember this problem in my previous Clio, and I'm sure the seat rails in a new car could be relocated rearwards, but I guess I'm not the only one with this problem ?

    I'm 6'3" & i've done the 8hr journey north back home...

    No probs, but i've always had a bit of an iffy back, so i put some lumbar support (the one in the seat does NOTHING, cept push the hips forward!) behind me from time to time for about 15min-1/2hr... stretches everthing out & good to go back to the normal seat for an hr or two.

    Leg room? no complaints there...

    Hi lkyphl,

    I think there are a couple of RSC owners who are over 6'.
    ParanoidAndroid would be the tallest at 6'7".
    Installing an aftermarket seat in Clio Sport ?

    Also try the RSC mailing list or forums.

    Jeez mate you must have long legs !!!

    I'm 6'7'' and I find the seat way too small and the head room a wee bit iffy but the leg room is fine. Are you sure u put the seat all the way back ?

    I do find the steering wheel and gear stick is a bit of a reach (even with my arms) so maybe u had the seat forward enough so that felt right but compromised the leg room. Thats said, I've never been in a car where u could stretch your legs out fully while sitting in a decent driving position. I'm sure for most cars and drivers that would be the same
