    Darn-- Hey can a 6'2-6'3 guy drive comfortably? I can fit in a MGB fine- but haven't sat in Alpine. Thoughts?

    I had a friend that was 6'7" and his daily driver was a Series V Alpine. Because everything is
    adjustable you can make the car fit you. I think the saying was if you're not comfortable in an
    Alpine, you won't be comfortable in anything. Besides, they're much roomier than an MGB. ( better
    built too!, but I'm not biased.

    Ash, only series V or do other S models also accommodate a 6’3 frame?

    The series I/II have 2 postion pedals but stock wheel is not telescoping and seats are not adjustable for height or rake.
    The series 3 onwards have a telescoping column and seats adjustable for rake and 2 height positions as well as the usual fore/ aft.

    That said early or other seats can be fitted to an early car and the wheels can be adjusted for proximity and set with an aftermarket boss.

    I am 6' 8" and have sat in a few. I just bought a S5 project. As long as the top is down, no problems.

    I removed the flip-down adjustment bar on the bottom of the seat frame. It gave me a precious extra 1/2".

    A nice feature on the Late Series Alpine seats is adjustable backs! A simple "notch" can make lots of difference is your seating arrangement.
