I have the same problem. I too am 6' 2". You have manual seats, right?

I assume you're familiar with the sliding height adjustment. The problem is that with the adjustment all the way back, I can barely reach the steering wheel and accelerator/brake. And the front-to-back adjustment isn't flat. So when you move the seat foreward, you loose headroom -- very annoying.

I've sat in a 190E that had POWER seats -- and it had plenty of headroom. So I'm considering converting to power seats. But I'm told that the conversion is not easy. It would be a breeze if the controls were on the seat instead of in the door.

If I can find some seats, switches, and wiring harnesses for a decent price, I may give it a whack. If I do, I'll post back with info.
