156 seat position

I drove an 156 1.6ts(model-1999) and my head was hiting the top of the roof.....i placed the seat in the lower height position...The strange thing is that i also drove Α156 2.5 V6 with alfa romeo's sunroof and i set the seat also in the lower position and my head did not hit the roof.....I asked a friend of mine who has A156 with the first facelift and he doesn't have this problem.So i want to ask if italians changed except the panel of 156(second edition) also the seats?.....cause i remember that when 156 was first introduced they said that drivers with height under 1.80+ whould have that kind of problem.

Re: 156 seat position

I am 1.87 (with relatively short legs) and I have enough headroom in my pre-facelift 2001 156. In fact I have a lot more headroom then in a 159 where there is not enough room for me to order a sunroof as well.

Re: 156 seat position

I have a 2000-reg pre-facelift 156, with the factory sunroof, and my head will touch the roof if I lean forward at all.

(Anyway, I can't see the point of a sunroof and air-con )

Re: 156 seat position

I have a 2000 Mk1 - Pre face lift 156, my head is very close to the roof, and I am a shortarse.

I was thinking of removing the height adjuster system and bolting the seat directly on the floor.

Maybe I should fit a Mk2 face lift interior?

Re: 156 seat position

Is the seat back at the same angle nin each car? If you tip the seat back so you can grab the slightly different steering wheel better then that would give you more head room.

You'd have to measure the seat height from the floor to be sure. about the seats..
