Can I extend the distance of the driver seat more?

    I am 6'2 and have a 2013 Model S and I get cramped up legs when driving it. My Dodge Charger has enough room where I can extend my legs out fully and not get cramping. I would say if my driver seat went back 2 more inches it would be perfect. Has anyone figured out how to do this? I imagine unbolting the seat and welding up some sort of a mount to the rails to extend the distance is the only way to do this? Thanks in advance. -hWild

    This place makes lots of different ones, but none for the Model S. If you filled out a request they may start making them though.

    Website says they'll make a custom kit for $1500 and that they're based in Los Angeles.

    Hopefully they'll add the Model S to their supported product line soon.

    Thanks for the link.

    Gives new meaning to "extending driver range" in an EV.

    You will arrive at the destination 2 inches later than any other Tesla.
