At 6'2" and 215lbs...believe I'm at the upper edge of the "comfort" specs for the Spider. As shared previously, I drive mostly highway (I95) between PA and DC twice a week and enjoy very much the ride, especially now with the top down and Autumn upon us. The only tweaks I'd like would be a slightly wider seat (maybe 1/2 on each side) and the ability to push the seat back an inch. The latter a tough one, but the former appears doable for some enterprising person. Terrific forum...learning an awful lot.

I'm the same height but I have a few more pounds on you. I actually find the seats quite comfortable, if snug. What really surprised me was the first time I sat on the passenger side - much less legroom over there! But it gives me a good argument to always be the driver. :)

I had the backrest of the seat made harder to get more lumbar support. As I am now slightly less deep into the seat, the side supports of the seat seem to be less poking into my flanks thus making them feel a little wider.
Because of the construction of the seats they are prone to give even less lumbar support after breaking in. The seats are entirely hollow, no foam, all comes from tensioning the fabric. so when the fabric stretches a little over time, support goes.
