Hate my sunroof

I love this truck. My BMW 650 convert sits in the garage so much I had to put a battery tender on it. One thing I am really unhappy about is, due to the sunroof requiring a lower headliner, my head rubs the headliner. Yes, seat is all the way down. If I recline it back anymore I may be mistaken for kid driving a ricer. So.... Anyone have a suggestion?

Sell it and buy a truck you fit in. I can't believe you didn't notice your head hitting the ceiling upon test driving the truck.

Does Ford or anyone else have a different seat that will fit your truck and meet your needs. Might be cheaper than buying another truck.

Lmfao!!!! I can relate to the toy being parked after your truck showed up, I have a 750hp Cherokee that didn't see an hour of driving for the first 6 months I got my truck.

LOL
I'd guess either his seat adjust differently than mine (After dropping it all the way down I actually have to recline it quite a bit and then adjust the seat back) or I'd estimate he's about 6'10" or taller.

I am 6'5" and don't hit my head - BUT I only have a few inches to spare with the seat config described. I agree with the OP that the SR/MR does considerably lower the headroom, and I certainly can't wear a trucker type baseball hat or cowboy hat in the truck, which was kind of surprising and disappointing to me considering the overall size of the crew cab and truck.

Just out of curiosity, does the 650 have a lot of leg/head room? I had an old M3 years ago and gave up on BMW because of the lack of room in the car (and its impracticality on mostly gravel roads in snow/farm country).

Incorrigible, do a search on "headroom" on this forum and you will find you are not alone in this topic. My 2011 also has moonroof and no headroom. And I am 6'4" and believe my ass is proportional to my height ;-) Anyway the seat has broken down some over time and I tend to lean on the glove box so with seat adjustments, a little bit of gansta styling...I have managed to work it out. The seats should actually lower in height as the seat is moved back, which is what the F150 trucks do. The further back the lower the seat is. Good luck.

You make me happy that I did not order the sunroof. Hadn't thought about the head room. But glad I'm not fighting it.
