Re: Seat Position

Sorry for digging up an old post but I think I’ve finally figured out what is going on. I have a very long back for my hight and what appears to be happening is the top of the seat is tilted slightly forwards and therefore pushes on my shoulder blades forward. Which explains why I can’t get comforta...

Re: Seat Position

Thanks for all your replies I have managed to get a much more comfortable position as a result. I have moved my seat up & forward and lowered my steering wheel to keep my hands at 3-9 & bellow my hart. Sadly Bavaria’s finest engineers don’t appear to have accounted for my body shape as my he...

Re: Seat Position

What car do you drive? Does it have an adjustable steering wheel? How do you judge the position for 'good control over the steering wheel'? I’ve got a BMW 1-Series “Sport” model to get the extra seat adjustments. It’s got reach / rake steering, seat hight, seat tilt, back angle and some weird thing...

Seat Position

I seem to struggle getting a comfortable driving position that gives me good control over the steering wheel. If I get my legs in a comfortable position then set the seat back to give me some back support (so not bolt upright) I’m struggling to reach the steering wheel. The only way around this is t...

Re: Hi all

Welcome to the forum. My first car was a Triumph Herald 13/60 estate. I still have fond memories of that rust-ridden death trap. I wanted a 13/60 as my first car but my Mum (who’s first car was a 13/60) said no and I had to get a Mk2 Firsta instead :( , which was even more of a rust ridden death tr...

Re: Limited Slip Diffs?

I used to own a Mk1 MX5 (Grey import) with an LSD. I once hit what I assume was Diesel on a roundabout on the A14 (Cambridge services). Back stepped out suddenly and I court it quickly, smoothly pulled it back it. Very controllable car! Similar situation in my current car BMW 1-Series with open diff...

Re: Roads they been a changin'

I’m intrested in your handbreak comment. My first observer in 2006 suggested I should be in Neutral with the hand break on at the front of a queue of traffic turning right on to an A road. This went against what my driving instructor and other IAM members had told me so I changed Observer. Now days ...
