To start off does your car have a sunroof? Because they will lower the ceiling a little, about an inch+, and will make future observations/calculations interesting...

Do you know about the height adjustment button? I'm not trying to be smart, but I mentioned the power height button in a thread like this and there was a whole slew of SVT owners that didn't even know about it.

I'm 5'11 and I have Recaros, with the seat all the way down I'm comfortable.

Having recently switched from standard ZX3/5 seats to the SVT Recaros, they do sit quite a bit higher. Even at the lowest adjustment.
