I am 6'2", and switched to GT3 seats in my Boxster about a year ago.

Concerns about safety are well taken. If it's not safe, we won't do it.

That said, I'm not convinced the present situation is 100% safe. It looks like GT3 seats are designed with a 6-point harness...

Thanks for the replies. The belt works okay, but it seems like it should go a little higher to avoid scuffing the center console, or hindering the seat's movement on the sliders. But I guess this is...

That plastic hinge might as well be made of paper. I replaced it a couple of years ago, took pains to NEVER use it, and it still snapped off!

Metal armrest hinge?

Well, my plastic armrest hinge has once again given up the ghost.

Does anyone know of a metal replacement hinge? I saw an aftermarket piece a few years ago, but can't remember where.

AAA also gets you hotel discounts. I used mine at Porsche Parade last year in Hershey and saved a bundle. It pretty much pays for itself if you use it once.
