2013 Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S: Pain in the Neck

On most counts the driving position in the 2013 Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S is just about perfect for 6-foot 2-inch tall me. The one glaring exception is the seat belt, specifically the non-adjustable upper anchor.

As you can see the webbing wants to ride up my neck, and I find myself constantly pushing it back down to keep it at bay. If I could move the anchor down a notch or two I imagine the belt would naturally settle into a more comfortable path across my shoulder.

The little leatherette loop that's provided for the purpose on top of the seat is of little use -- it lives below the level of my shoulder and its weak snap catch can't deal.

I guess I need to figure on wearing a collared shirt when I drive these machines.
