Question About Fitting Into a 2012 SS

Hey guys, I have a question about fitting into a new 2012 SS. I'm a big guy. I'm about 6'2-6'3 and I weigh about 265. I was wondering if anyone around my size could give me an estimate as to about how much space you actually have in this car. Is it comfortable for you bigger guys and should i consider going with a convertible so that my head isn't always touching the roof?

I'm 6'2 245 and have more than enough room. No issues at all.

Go try one on for size. A big and tall coworker wanted a Camaro soooo bad, until he sat in one. He felt cramped. I told him not to sit in a model with a sunroof, but he did anyway. He is still driving a truck.....ho hum!!

What's the difference between the models with the sunroof compared to those without it?

6'3", 275# - My first test drive was in a hard top back in January...I fell in love. The next encounter was "window browsing" and I sat in a sun roof model--It was impossible. Funny 'cuz I wasn't expecting it. I was like "What the hell?" after trying to fit in the sun roof with my shoulders touching my ears. The convertible top has the most headroom, but you're gonna pay more for the rag top (cost and insurance).

Well, Just bought my first 2SS yesterday and the only disappointing thing is that I didn't realize how bad the seat belt was going to torture and cut into my neck. Now I'm trying to figure out how to cope.

As for the size or "roominess"... It's a sports car.

I sat in a beautiful Corvette Grand Sport while doing the wait yesterday and again today after driving my 2SS for keeps last night and running an errand back to the dealership. I got in the Corvette again and realized "That's just the way it is." I'm getting used to it. The Vette was a vert with top down, but it was the same experience being in the driver seat with the belt on and door closed.
