Yes, I believe the Recaro seats in the Millennium go down a tad further than standard.

I've got standard seats in mine and have no head-touching-roof issues and I'm 6'3. If your head is touching the roof then you must have your seat jacked all the way up?? I've got the seat all the way down in mine and there's tons of room between the top of my head and roof lining. :| Imho you need the seat all the way down anyway because of the low down position of the steering wheel; it's already in my lap as it is and there'd be no way I could drive it if the seat was any higher up! :o

This topic is years old but would just like to confirm that as a 6ft 4 puma owner with standard seats my head is skimming the roof. My seat is fully pumped down. If I wind it back a bit my head has slightly more room but the compromise is absolutely no lumbar support. I have just bought full recaro off eBay so will be able to report back if it makes a difference :grin:

Haha no way! Full recaro interior popped up for £150. I made an offer of £100 but then I got antsy waiting for the response and decided just to pay the £150 instead :lol:

I can tell that my impatience is going to cost me greatly with this build

£150 is great for full recaro. Most are £250-£300
