RE: 5-speed A4 1.8TQ

I'm 6'1" and I really have no problem seeing the gauges in my A4q (2.8).  
Maybe the sport seats have a little more under leg cushioning, so you sit a

The seat is as low as it will go.  Since my head isn't bumping
up against the roof, I am just a little surprised that I have to duck
to see the top of the gauges.  Maybe you drive in a more laid-back 
position than I do?  I could lean the chair back a little more, but 
my little one in the back probably won't like that...
