    Default For all those wondering "will I fit"?

    First drive and first fuel up with my buddy Jeff insisting on going.
    I'm '6 3" 235lbs and Jeff is 6' 4" 255 or 490lbs of combined beef (and yes some fat). I was skeptical for sure but It really wasn't a problem, we were able to comfortably enjoy the drive, shoulders barely cleared each other and damn this car is fun! However, I wouldn't suggest someone this size for date night.

    Steve should open the door and check the gross vehicle weight I think you might have went over it :-) I remember bony mentioning that to me on the 05 s and 06. I've been over the weight limit on my 05 a few times with the passenger.
