    Was a nice video, they often have a nice selection of cars.
     
    Unsure what he meant to as fitting in, as I have quite a few people sit in the MR2 and actually find it roomy.  That car was a hard top so should of had the most amount of room!
     
    Only thing I could possibly think is the Recaros that were fitted in that car - sit higher then standard seats.

    Matt's a big boy!  But I think Recaro seats/rails don't slot as far back into the cockpit as the OEM seats,  giving the impression the legroom is less than it actually is.
    Nicely done SW.  Presume it's a 2GR. Mmm...

    Spyders have more usable room inside the cockpit than the SW does.  Period lol.
     
    SW just happens to have a boot though...

    Its not just a shorter persons car, i'm around 190cm or so and find there's a lot more room than in an xr6 falcon. I guess it depends on your torso to leg ratio. A mate of mine is the same height as me but he hits head in my SW, I can't get my legs into his little datto ute.
     
    But another car build in this video using Koni yellows, I swear by mine.
