    Astra Mk Iv seat height - how many clicks?

    Hi, for people who own an astra Mk4, how many clicks of the ratchet seat mechanism do you have the height set and how tall are you?

    It might seem like a random question, but having owned the car for a while ive never truly found a driving seat height ive stuck too.

    I used to have it in lowest but back started to ache so started changing to 4 then to 6 and even 8 clicks high at one point. I find that the thigh support goes when the seight is too high adn the distance between knees and steerign wheel decreases, so ive dropped down to 4 again.

    Out of curiosity im seeing what settings other people have, relative to their height!

    Always had mine set to the lowest, never tried it any other way. I like to have as much room between legs and steering wheel as possible.
