Z4 for tall driver?

Hey folks, any of you Z4 owners (coupe and convertable) over 6 feet tall? Please give me some details.

there are plenty of people who are over 6' fine with the Z4...it'd be just little difficult to get in and out with the top closed.

inside there is PLENTY of room!

6' 4.5''... fits like a glove! even have a reclined in town posistion that has the seat closer to the dash, and a spirited driving option that places the back more upright which allows the bottom seat portion to be moved aft allowing for action heal toes with out the steering columm interfering with my knee...

Cool... I've been discussing with the wife whether or not we wanna make the jump over to the Z4 from the E90... Since we've got a RAV-4 as our people hauler, it seems like a good idea. I'm gonna go test-drive one sometime and see what I think about it. The only question is whether to buy a used one or lease a new one? I really like the style 202 rims that are only found on the older 3.0i sport models...

6'-3" and i've got very broad shoulders... no problems.

the only time it gets difficult is if i have my cup holder open.. then it takes a bit of a dance to get in.

6'5" and I have enough legroom and headroom. I don't think you can go much more than 6'6" and be comfortable in a Z4.

5'11" and it fits like a glove. This should be renamed the Official member height thread... Getting in is the hard part, especially on side slanted hills!

6' and it is not a problem. I think the height lends to difficulty for some tall drivers. Once in the car there is enough room although the M seats seem narrow in the shoulders for me. I have more of a complaint with the BMW 4 door due to the B pillar placement and smaller doors. I dislike having to look around it.

6'5" here and found the Z4 was one of the only roadsters that I fit in! Tried all the others.

Could go a 911, as it has a tiny set of seats in the rear and you can move seat right back, but a lot more $ of course.

6'1 here I fit fine..... This weekend my passenger was 6'6" it looked comical he was "comfortable", but his knee's were at the dash & had a few beers. I should have put him in the driver seat for a comparison....

So, my brother-in-law just asked me if I wanted to sell my E90 to him. I'm still debating whether or not I should sell it to him and pick up Z4 or just keep my E90. Also, if I do whether or not to buy a used one or lease a new one.
