So I'm thinking about getting an FC. The only thing that's holding me back is the size of the car. It just seems like a very small car. I'm 6'3" so I'm wondering if I will have any issuses sitting in the car. My last car was a S14 and I thought that was okay. So basically what I want to know is are there any members here that have had any issuses with the FC being too small.



Thanks

I'm 6'4", I drive my FC every day. It has a sunroof, too. If I put my seat at a 90 degree angle, then yeah my head hits. Hard time riding with a helmet on too, but regular driving is fine.

would a aftermarket bucket seat fix the helmet problem? or is the FC seat pretty low enough?

the FC seems pretty similar to the size of a 240 on the inside...

Not sure, but if I didn't have a sunroof, fitment wouldn't be a problem. That sunroof drops the ceiling quite a bit.

I'm 6 foot 1, and I fit perfectly fine. If Kev is 6 foot 6 and can fit in there, I am sure anyone can. Kev is a tall ****!

I have corboau seats and I had to shave off an inch of foam because the seat was higher than stock. So unless it has little to no padding you'll need to modify it.
