Default Helmet Clearance with sunroof

Hi,

I am going to buy an '05 WRX this summer and I have a question about head room/helmet clearance.

I am a tall b@stard at 6'5". I have sat in a WRX without a helmet OR sunroof and had tons of head room.

How is the headroom with and without a sunroof and helmet?

If it is tight for you with a helmet and sunroof, are you able to open the sunroof for extra clearance?

Thanks for the look,
Erik

I'm 6'4" and I made sure to get one without the sunroof.

When I put the seat up for autocrossing, so I have good leverage on the steering wheel, my helmet touches the headliner. I also removed the 'o ish' handle for a little extra room.

Just bring your helmet for the testdrive and try it out.

Im 6"4' in an 04 with a helment im brushing the ceiilng adn since most subaru sunroofs cut out 2-3 inches Im going to guess you wont fit.

The 02-03s had a little more headroom then the 04s. If you are going to get a race seat and mount it on the floor you should be able to fit.

I did do that before I got the STi. They just looked at me kind of funny.

Yes, I didn't want to void the warranty before I left the lot

Thanks for all the input.

Im 6'2 and with my helmet on its very uncomfortable to sit in an "ideal" position. I have to slouch and lean back alittle because It will hit.
