Car Seat Too Close

I was wondering if it is possible to move the drivers seat back a few inches? Should I go to my dealer to have this done or does anyone have a suggestions of a specialty shop that can get the job done? I'm 6'5" and it seems like I am 2 to 3 inches too tall for this car. I've moved the pedals as far back as they can go too.

I never heard of this needing to be done.
I don't know what to tell you.

I'm kinda in the same boat, 6'4" I think...lol

the only thing I can say is move the seat back, lower the seat as much as you can and go buy an SUV

seriously if you hear something let me know but I'm just dealing with it. I don't have trouble unless I'm turning the wheel hard and my hand usually ends up hitting my knees

You could always fabricate a sencond railing system to make the seat to go back further.
It woudl more and likely have to sit on top of the existing rail.
