    I am trying to see if I can fit a S model into one of my garage bays. I have wall cabinets that have 38" of clearance under them and I have no idea how tall the hood area is. Does anyone have a measurement from the center of the front wheel from floor to top of hood? Appreciate it.

    Would you consider Air Suspension to lower the car when parking?

    I'm getting 36.5" if you include the raised "rails" on each side of the hood. But concur that it should fit under a 38" obstruction.

    Sure. Note that I've got the standard suspension. Probably could have a little more clearance with the air suspension by setting it low.
