Chris,I went through the TECH Q&A and could not find an answer.Last year I took my 964 C2 coupe with sunroof to my first DE with the local BMW clud at Tremblant track. I was surprised that I was not able to fit COMFORTABLY in the cabin with my helmet on (I should have checked this before!!!). I had to recline my seat backward, which made the driving position uncomfortable. By the way I'm bang on 6 foot tall. I also know that Porsche made big improvements on the 964 seat in order to fit a tall person(Like me). I have a set of SPARCO Sprint seats from my previous DE car sitting in my basement. Also my helmet is an inexpensive helmet. I have three options:1) Buy Sparco Brackets and install my sprint seats with the 3 point belt (OEM). But I'm not sure if this will lower me enough in the car and if a need some modification to install the belts. I will lose the access to the back seat, which is really practical.2) Buy a better and hopefully thinner helmet.3) Live with it and try to make my position somewhat acceptable.Also I'm planning to make at least 3 DE Week-ends this year.Any suggestions?Thanks Merry ChristmasPat
