    Hi,

    Is it possible to lower the seats?
    As of my lenght of 1m85, a few centimeters would help for more convenience with and without roof:D

    The rear underside of my seats almost scrape the carpet and the front fixings for the seat have no margin for lowering. The front fixing bolts are bolted to a crossmember which is a structural part of the car and can't practically be altered. I would say there is no way to lower the seat without possibly major surgery on the actual seat itself. You'll have to remove the seat to have a look.

    Hi DaG,
    Thanks for the reply; I took a detailed look today after I read your reply: Ithink you'r right, it's hardly possible without surgery

    Regards, Jan

    I suggest taking your copen for a drive on some bumpy roads for a couple of hours. By that time a few of your vertebrae should have disintegrated and your problem will be solved.
