Has anyone done anything to get a little more space on the passenger seat, the foot-well is substantially less and inability to recline the seat a few inches kills me while the wife is behind the wheel? With soo, much room behind the seats 3-6 inches to recline would be sweet.
May have to move to the CTS-V or newer Camaro (but nothing beats the Vette styling), guess father time is taken its toll for long tours. Not over-weight, 6 foot 1, 220, but over an hour and I am squirming like a youngster in the back seat waiting for "when are we going to get there, any suggestions besides telling the wife, your time is limited behind the wheel?

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know if it would work on a C7 but on my '73 I put some spacers under the two front seat mounting tracks to give myself a little bit of reclining.

2018 Stingray legroom is definitely less on the passenger side (both at two 6 foot 1-2 tried to extend legs fully). I don't own one (on the bucket list), but a buddy and I rented one in Florida for four days from Hertz and both noticed when we switched drivers that the passenger side is a bit cramped versus the driver side. On another note, don't ever buy a Vette from a rental agency, ours only had 3000 miles, but as us, I am sure that nobody was reading the break-in period. Seemed to already have a valve ticking noise on idle. Great way to get a long test drive in though with unlimited miles per day at $155/day. Split between the two of us, a blast for the weekend.

Personally I wouldn't buy one until I had actually seen it because I have some reservations about the design overall. Given your requirements, I would definitely want to sit in one before I ordered one.
I bought mine sight unseen but I'm a normal-sized guy at 5'9".
