2012 seat track extensions

Hey guys. Anyone know of a place that offers seat track extensions? I wouldn't mind adding a few extra inches.

Yes, I drove the car. Yes, I sat in a good seat position. Unfortunately now my right leg is giving me some issues.

That sucks.

I'm 6'5 and I don't even have my seat all the way back and I'm great. I guess I like the rally feel.

One of my old boyfriends was 6' 3" and my legs are/were longer than his and I am only 5' 9" He had a long torso, and I have long legs.
Funny how people are so differently made up.

100% correct. Yeah, people may be taller or shorter, but how long are their legs compared to their torsos. I have a friend he's 6'5", and he can squat almost 500 lbs. Me, I'm shorter, but I can't squat 500 lbs because my legs have to travel farther than his. Sucks, but that's the way people were made.

Anyway guys, I found an automotive place that will extend my seat for me an extra 2.5 to 3 inches back. I'm dropping it off on Tuesday of next week. All together, he quoted me about $300 with labor and parts. The way I figure it, $300 for extra comfort. Anyone else live in Southern California want to know where this guy is, drop me a PM, and I'll get the address and number back to you.

I feel bad for the person who has to sit behind you after you get the new tracks installed lol
I'm 5'10 and I have to have the seat all the way back to feel comfortable as well

I noticed when the seat is all the way back the seat belt doesn't touch me. Is that with you too? Just imagine now with the seat couple inches back.....the belt will be further from me. Is that a problem if I get into an accident? Hmmmmm......

I have a similar issue. I'm 5'9 but I have short arms. When I sit with my legs comfortable I have to fully extend my arms to reach the steering wheel. :(

Did you guys get an awkward car or what? I literally don't have that problem and my inseam is 38". I guess I like my knees in the dash, help me if I ever get in an accident will probably lose some knee caps.
