Default Honda S2000 Question, Taller Driver...?

I'm looking into an s2k for a summer ride, but I'm 6'4. I won't fit into Solstice or Sky, but I fit fine in a Z4. Anyone who owns an S2K that could tell me whether or not I'll fit in one? Thanks

It will be close, but you should fit. You should sit in one and see how you like it though. You might have a taller torso and may not fit or you may have longer legs and might fit even better.

I've test driven one with my Dad and I found that it had loads of leg room. It's also not so bad with the roof up.

I actually owned one. I am 5'10 175 lbs. I felt cramped on it. It just feels like you are confined, not too much room to "get comfortable" in. Overall it is probably the best all around 2 seat convertible on the market, but it just felt too small for me.

I'm 6'2, all torso, and own and love one.It is cramped, I'm not gonna lie. In pictures where I'm sitting in it, it looks sort of funny... the S2k looks bigger than it is, and so by proxy, it looks like I should be 6'8 or something.The biggest issue I have is that my eyes are on level with the very lowest part of the trim above the windshield, and so when I pull up to a light, I either have to hunch over, or if the top is down (90% of the time), I have to look over the windshield, otherwise I can't see when the light is green.I find that I have enough headroom with the top up because you really sink back into it. I actually *like* the feeling of being strapped into the thing like that a lot more than driving my parents' Town Car or another vehicle where I feel like I could swim in it.There a few companies that make lowered seat brackets for the S2k, too - they run for $100-250 depending on the company and all that, and are well worth it for taller guys.Interestingly enough, the footwell is wide enough that I have no problems with my size 15EE (extra wide) feet, which is an issue in most other cars.
