The skydome does lower the roof lining by about 2 inches.

    well im 6foot 3 and i have no problem what so ever.... use the height ajustment lever on the right hand side of the seat....

    Have you not bothered to read the thread so far?  It's as far down as it goes!

    The SkyDome must lower the roof lining by quite a large amount as head clearance is a lot less

    no i didnt read it. The questions in the topic title so i took it from there. problem with that?

    to me though it seems kinda dum.... if i test drove a car and my head hit the roof id not buy the car...... or is that just me using my brain?

    I was just going to apologise about the way I had written that reply but I don't think I'll bother.

    I have a good inch or so of clearance, I just want to lower the seat a; to give me more room and b; to get a better, lower driving position.

    As it is at the moment the driving position was actually lower in my Grande Punto Sporting..

    I find it just seems to be the thickness of the seats. Try Sabelts and you find u sink in and sit alot lower.

    Don't know I just remember trying the Sablet's in an AGP and you just seemed to move into the seat space more thus giving more room or at least thinking you have  ;D
