    They should show that animation for people that are 6' 4", unfortunately compromises must be made to fit in a typical car, focus included

    Unfortunately the Recaros in the Focus don't have that many levels of adjustment. No thigh extenders, especially.

    That would have been too good to be true in this price range

    A man can dream...

    Although considering it's a manual adjustment even on BMWs, I can't imagine there's much cost to include that in the seats.

    I find it kinda surprising that those instruction are what I've always pretty much done naturally. I have to admit that I don't like my shoulders being in constant contact with the seat, but I may try it for a while and see if it improves my experience behind the wheel. The upright seating position with my bottom all the way back is essential... I have no idea how folks sit in that heavily reclined "gangster" style position... horrible!

    If you don't ride low like that, the B-pillar won't shield your melon from incoming gunfire. Safety first.
