I need to have a look into this tonight as my helmet is hitting the roof and I can't get the seat to lower anymore.

Some 1M's seats sit higher. Zuzu's seats are definitely able to go lower than mine

I will do alik01's trick and will seat in the passenger side to see if there is any difference. If so, then it is a visit to the dealer.

I asked my dealer. No adjustment they said. Passenger seat is lower

That sounds like BS from the dealer. I might have to send my car to Darwin if that's the case.

I have not grown and I think they are the same. I recall when I jumped off my 135 and took my 1M home

Maybe for yours Taka. Kamal's was definitely higher at it's lowest setting.

I haven't checked mine out yet, may be around lunch time since I have got my car today. I sort of vaguely remember in the 135i I was never on the lowest setting for the seat, and now I am at the lowest. Will keep reporting - might give me an excuse to get a set of recaros

I'm ~182cm Steve & I fit in the 135 ok with my helmet on? Could both your seats have their limit switches, gearing (or whatever governs the min. height), set too high?

Do you mind measuring the height for me if you have it at the lowest setting and may be full forward tilt?

Many thanks!

Having driven Kamal's in February, I thought it was still higher than mine. Mind you, I still fitted in it with my helmet on.

My drivers side seat is deffinately lower than Ian's at the lowest setting.
Had both cars alongside each other. Sat in one car, then the other. No rocket science in determining that there was a difference in height.

Must be the floor then.

Seriously though. Joe's seat has more adjustment, although I think if you pivot front forward then there is more downward adjustment.

Interested to know if a software issue?
