    I also have a city and am experiencing the same problems. The driving position is uncomfortable and the steering wheel is too low. Does anyone out there know what can be done to remove this problem?
    Thanks

    I uesd to drive a Margalla some years back. I am 1.9 meters tall i.e. 6fett and 2.5 inches. I had a lot of problem in that car as far sterring wheel and seat gap is concerned. What I did was that I extended the seat railings for another 3 inches by welding extensions to the orignal railings. The seat mounts on the floor were not disturbed. It created an extra space of 3 inches which was quite comfortable. YOu can try this with a help of any good denter / body fitter. The only problem is thatleg room for rare seat occupant becomes too less. If nobody is sitting at the rare seat then you can drive comfortably.

    YOu can raise the car body by two methods.(a) Use aluminum or rubber spacers in the shock mount. (b) Can also use springs with more number of turns. These springs will raise the car by 2 inches.

    use larger rims to increase grd clearance but also keep in mind increased grd clearance has negative effect on brakes

    best remedy.. is to simply change your car, sell city, and buy a civic........that is if you find civic has enough leg room.. if that is less too then buy a crown..lol
