On the other hand, my 'beater' '96 Legacy "L" has softer cloth seats that are reasonably 'grippy', and with the softer seat bottoms I actually sink in to the seats a bit, giving me that much more head room.

I cant help wondering if ditching the leather on the '99 will give me more head room or not...

I am not sure if the seat designs in general changed over the years to make the seat bottoms firmer, or if this is just something unique to the leather seat option...

Are you actually interested in selling your stock cloth seats ?
