Pain in the Neck

This car for me is a study in contradictions. I very enjoy the car's aesthetic and performance characteristics, but driving the car is a literal pain in the neck (and back) because of driver's seat and head restrain design. I have tried for over a year to "dial in" the multiple seating and head restraint configurations to something approaching comfortable, but no luck. Perhaps at 6'4" and 212 lbs I am too big for the car. Anyhow, the car is now for sale.
Styling and performance.
Redesign driver's seat and head restraint components so as not to intrude on driver's normal seating position and to accommodate a wider range of body sizes.
