    How much more headroom do you get in car w/o sun roof?

    I have a V coupe and constantly hit my head against the headliner and I'm under 6-1 and the seat is all the way down.

    I was just wondering how much more room can be obtained in a coupe w/o the sun roof especially since I never use it.

    Is there anyone who wants to take mine out and replace it with a steel roof? lol.

    I'm about the same height (no sunroof) and if I lowered my seat to its lowest setting, I would still have about 4-5 inches clearance to the ceiling. I have my seat elevated slightly for better visibility with a few inches to spare.

    There was a thread around here about 6 months ago where a member took two V's (sedans, I think) and measured the difference. Sunroof vs. none, stock seats vs. Recaros. I think the seats were about 1/4" and the sunroof about an inch. I think...

    I'm not a tall person, and I like to sit higher and more upright in the car. I don't have much clearance. I couldn't imagine what it would be like with the sunroof. The seats will sit pretty low though, so there is probably room to get used to either position. I think the bigger question is, do you want the sunroof/vent, and possible leak headaches for a sunroof that doesn't even open all the way. At least in the sedan, it might be worth the risk.

    I remember that post. I think it was 1.1 inches of head room.

    that was me - search my user name for the thread. That inch or so "feels" like more.
