Hey guys, for all of us that don't yet have a solstice and have yet to have the pleasure of sitting in one, could some of you take a picture or two from eye level while sitting in the driver seat?? Maybe just one of the road so that we can easily imagine ourselves sitting in the driver seat? And maybe one of the doorsill so we can get a sense of just how low in the car we are sitting?? I think I speak for all of us solstice-virgins by thanking the picture takers in advance.
Thanks

Marco,

I believe you said you were 6'2. Would you be able to take a pic of yourself somehow buy having the camera looking at you from the passenger side, eye level to see how much your eyes are under the top of the windshield, and how much your hear is above the top? (did that make sense?)
Thanks!
-Dylan

Check out my pics of a Pure pre-prod at my dealership, I took a drivers view pic. It gives a bit more perspective of the viewing area than Marco's pics I think, cause I included the windshield surround.

Noticed the radar detector....how fast have you gotten it? I've only taken it to 90 and I was happy with that...

A "friend" of mine, who stole the car brought it back and said he was doing 115 in 4th gear at 6000 rpm's ;)

But "he" could have gone faster

I've had the top up for 20 minutes in 3 weeks. My head fits fine though. I have a long torso, 32" inseam and yes, 6'2"

Hey guys thanks so much for putting up the pictures. Now we all can imagine ourselves in a sol a lot easier now! That's what this forum is all about - spreading information and excitement about a wonderful car. Thanks again.

Same dimensions as me. Sweeet. I am relieved that you are saying you fit just fine. I have been worrying for a loooong time!
thanks again marco

Same inseam as me, but I am only 6', so should fit with room to spare.

Thanks for the pics.

Man, your "friend" is making me jealous. I've been a good owner and kept it under 3500rpm since I got a late start and only have 200 miles on it to date.

I crossed 2000 today. My friend waited till it had about a 1000.

Here's couple from when I was on vacation. Camera distorts view a bit but it's close. I tend to keep the seat back a lot, I like my legs out almost straight. The clutch catches high up.

I'm 5'7" and have perfect view of gauges while driving.
