- plenty enuf seat travel for me to stretch out EXCEPT for my left leg due to aforementioned floor design.

i never had this issue on any car i've owned before. IMO, just poor design....
Do you know why the left side is raised more than the left??? it has to do with the design for the wheel suspension.

as for me, im 6'1" 209 and wear 34/34 and my legs rest similar as yours(OP). i feel no metal in the sides of my leg or discomfort on long rides and i commute 84 miles one way to work. I have a SEL w leather.
