Seat Height....

Does anyone have any genius ideas how to make the seat lower in a GTV? I have a 3.0 V6 with the red leather and I just dont fit in it properly. For most people that may have put them off buying the car, but its an Alfa with a V6 and I have always wanted one...... so i bought it!

I can only think of replacing the seats, but that seems a big waste.

The only other option is to recline the seat more, but then the steering wheel is too far away, so I would need a spacer behind it.

Any ideas?

Re: Seat Height....

Try a search, I'm sure some people have lowered the seat, maybe by removing part of the runners, I can't quite remember, but I'm sure it's been done before.

I know its obvious but the steering wheel adjusts in and out as well as up and down if this helps in the short term.

Re: Seat Height....

I get the impression that Phase 1 cars had removable spacers. On my Phase 2 it all seems to be fixed unfortunately. I'm getting on for 6'2 and avoid the headlining by having the seat back reclined (but if I had a sunroof it would be impossible). Removing the sun visor improves the view.
