Welcome aboard here!
I am 6'2 and depending on time of day or day of week....220-225
I like to think I fit fine and am comfortable in my 03 vert. Two probs I have are lack of storage (immediate with in reach) for maps, wallet, glasses. The console in the middle isn't enough and the "glove box" is too far. I would like to have "map" pockets of some sort in the doors. The other problem is mine only, not tha car's...my bones don't move like they used too, arthritis, so at times I am physically comfortable but in pain.

Another member here is Truck Guy, I think he may be taller than me and he is fine in his 02 vert.

Your dad will more than likely need the sport seats, don't settle on a car with base seats. As a matter of fact at his size, I really suggest the 1sb package which should include sport seats, heads up display and I think tilt/telescopic wheel.

I'm 5'11" and about 200 lbs. and have never had any problem in my 93 or 01 Convertibles. I mean---you have adjustable seat, mirrors, steering wheel.

6'1" 245-250. No problem with the C5. Easy in an out.(it would probably be easier if I was a little younger) plenty of leg roon. With the A4 I can stretch my legs out and still not hit the firewall. Plenty of head room even with a cap on.

I'm 6' 1" @ 230lbs and getting in and out of the C4 is cake but the headroom is at a premium. I had to take out the headliner b/c I was smashing it with a helmet on. The C5 has much more leg and headroom than my '87.

Welcome aboard :buhbye:

and I hope you find what your looking for. :cheers:

Like War Machine, I'm 6'2" @230 and gettin in is no problem. The problem I have, probably like everyone here, is once I'm in I don't want to get back out!

6'3" 290lbs of twisted steel and sex appeal and I have not a problem in the world with my Z06. In fact, it is the most comfortable sports car I have ever owned.

:partyon: VERY COMFY! The 2002 Z06 seats are like Caddy bench seats compared to my 87 standard seats.
