    Hi Guys

    Keen to hear from any UK forum members who's spec'd a GTS with the fully electric seats.

    I'm torn between the Full Carbon and Full Electric. The reason is the heat function which appeals to me for having the roof down in the colder weather.

    I'm 6'0 and like to think I won't be hitting the roof when it is up but any feedback or welcome.

    I always chose racing seats as they look better imho and they sit lower in the car to give you a crucial extra bit of head clearance. If you go for the very comfortable standard seat make sure you sit in a GTS with the roof closed and see if the sun visor is in your eye-line before you commit. It’s the single reason I choose racing seats and never spider versions. I have a Superfast and would never give it up for a GTS. The cockpit is cramped like a V8 car vs. the GT spaciousness of the Superfast and car doesn’t look as good imho. Especially in UK where we have really only a few months with the roof down. Not to mention a Superfast is much better value now! Image Unavailable, Please Login

    6’4” and had a difficult time fitting in GTS with full electric comfort seats. Haven’t sat in one with carbon buckets, but that should give you more head room. At 6’ you’ll probably be fine, but you should go and sit in one with top up and down just to confirm

    Thanks guys, I remember sitting in a 812SF with full electric and must admit I did feel a bit closer to the roof but just felt the heating option would sell it to me on the basis we get very few scorcher days other than summer!

    I’m 6’2” and fit fine in the GTS full electric seats although the SF with the same seats was a bit more spacious overall
