    You will need to jack your seat up.

    I'm also 5' 8" and can remember the time when it was defined as the national average height......... Never felt the urge to put blocks under the front of the seat in the Cabrio. Tempted to give it a try, nothing ventured etc....

    Decided to use some box section to raise the seats slightly welding them to the runners, far stronger than the alloy box section. Done one side and t’other to do. Trial fit still feels a bit low so may do the same to the underside of the runner so the total raised will be 2” with plenty of head room.

    ................and before you go further or firm on this try packing the front up 1-2 inches, gives IMHO a better driving position
