How to increase comfort for tall drivers? w123 300td

Hello all,

I have sold my large and roomy 300sd and now have a 300td but im experiencing discomfort driving it. I am 6'1" with a long torso. I have the seat as low as it goes and my head still grazes the headliner. also i cant find the right balance of front/back position without having my legs crammed under the wheel or my arms completely stretched out...

Ideally, i think the seat could be several inches lower and the steering wheel spaced out a couple inches.

Anyone have mods to achieve such things? currently i am thinking of swapping out my seats for something that doesn't have 6" worth of seat cushion. Any ideas or suggestions would be great!

Bit of a daft suggestion but has been discussed before - sunroof delete...
