tall guy seats
 
had my s2k for a week now and I love it, getting used to the rough ride lol. Im 6’2” and fit ok, its not uncomfortable with the stock seats but I would like to get a drivers seat that will sit me a bit lower and further back. Any suggestions?
I think what Im looking for is a thinner seat thats not a hard fiberglass racing seat, its my daily driver

If you have a stock suspension, I don't know if I would call it rough. On a rough road it is not going to be as smooth as an SUV but I have grown to appreciate the road feel with mine.
You might try to vary the seat back even if that means pulling the seat forward a tad. I prefer more recline than other people.

You can get lower seat rails that'll drop the seat a bit, but as for getting it farther back, there's only so much room you have to work with.

Nope, try Google for S2000 low seat rails.

ok, I found Buddy Club lowering seat rails, anyone know how much lower than stock they will go?

thanks Cosmo, I see thats for the Backyard Special which runs about $300 and the Buddy Club is about $160 but they should be pretty close in lowering amount

Good luck. This reminds me of what they had to do for Tom Selleck to be able to fit in the Ferrari 308GTS from Magnum PI. His head stuck out over the windshield so they had to use lower rails and remove some padding from the seat so he fit. :)

I heard in 007 they had to cut the roof off for Sean Connery to fit in the Toyota 2000GT.
