    Maybe some Recaro Aftermarket bucket seats will suffice your needs
    Anyone else got some input for him?

    It feels to high for me as well. Not that I don't have enough head room. But it's almost like all I see is hood, i'm looking down through the windshield and at the hood straight on, also that the sun visor blocks everything when flipped down.

    The seats in the Tacoma feel make me feel like I'm sitting very high as well but in my case it's just because I sit so low in my Miata which is my DD.
