I would like the engineers at Tesla working on Model 3 to take tall people into account, I'm 6'5", and although from what I heard there'll be sufficient room for my legs, the other problem other cars often have when you make enough room for your legs is that you are sitting too far away from the steering wheel.
It's bad if the steering wheel doesn't pull out far enough towards the driver in order to accommodate a comfortable no-stretched arm sitting position (elbows on elbow wrests, pretty much like in a chair, hands going down parallel to the body from shoulders with a ~110 degree bend at the elbow and hands on the steering wheel).
I'd hate it if there was enough leg room but the steering wheel was too far for a comfortable drive. Yes I know I could be using the drive-assist and such but I need to be able to drive without it comfortably also.
If I have to move my seat closer for my hands to be in a comfortable relaxed steering position, then my legs will be pinched, so please make the steering wheel extend out sufficiently for people at least 6'6".
