I think there have been folks of that size and heavy weight as well get in and out of the S (not saying you are of heavy weight, just adding to the realm of possibility for fitting in an S). The drivers side leg area goes in pretty far in the car to allow for long legs. But best advice, as already stated, is to try to get in one and see.

Go drive one. Also, I know many racing seats can sit lower. A good friend of mine is 6'4" and bought a racing seat for his DC2 for this reason.

get seat rails...they will lower the seats about an inch or so.

Head room will be okay and if it's a little close, you can always get lower seat rails. The real problem is the steering wheel has no tilt feature at all. That means you can't raise or lower the steering wheel and leg room can be tight for larger builds.

I'm of similar height. It's going to be close depending on how you like to sit, your leg lengths and torso height and how tights of a squeeze you can tolerate.

I'd be much happier if the seat rails went back one notch further, and if I had another inch of height to the windshield and the top. Unless I lean down to check, I can't see traffic lights if I'm the first or second car stopped at a light. At night though, I can see the reflection off the dash.

It is more comfortable than the RSX (with the top up)? No.
Do I prefer it over the RSX? Yes.

My friend is your height and his knees touch the steering wheel and its a pain in the ass to get in and out. Sucks to be tall and to short. I am 5'7

My friend is 6'2 and daily's his. He has to have the seat all the way back but he finds it comfortable. He's also only around 165. I find it snug at 5'10 160 but I like it. I feel planted in the seats.

werd, i'm 6'2" and i am actually very comfy with the seat pulled one notch forward from all the way back. plenty of head room too, but my legs do pretty much rub the steering wheel. i like that fit though.

I'm 6'1" and fit into the S2000 just fine. I think part of the issue is the S2K seats are really designed to hold you int place. In other words, you can't just "slide around in them" like you can with the RSX. It feels like you are strapped into a fighter jet or something. If a person were heavy, I think that might create more issues than being tall. But, like the others are sayin: Go try one out and decide for yourself.

I'm 6'2" and absolutely love how I fit in the car. You just have to sit all the way back and not slouch if you're used to domestic car armchairs.

I have a couple tall friends between 6'3" and 6'6" who have tried to fit in my S2k

The 6'3" guy can fit vertically, but he's too fat for the seats and he's not comfortable even with the thing all the way back, and has an extremely hard time getting in and out of the car.

I don't recommend an S2k as a DD for anybody over 6' but you still could potentially pull it off at 6'2"-6'3"
