When Lexus arrived on America's shores over a decade ago, the company promised to offer its customers world-class luxury at real world prices.

    Hello, with regard to tall drivers, can the driver seat be adjusted to accommodate the driver's back and head? I test drove a IS 300 for about 30 minutes and after my middle to lower back was sore. I want to give this car another chance with regard to the seat and driving position. I also do not want to revert to a "cultural seat position" that I do not understand. I am a passionate motorist where "driving is my hobby and I am very keen on it". I have always been a Toyota loyalist, and I don't want to leave it to buy something else. I am 6 foot 4 inches with a linebacker physique, over 250 lbs. I want to like this car very much. I really like the 5 speed manual option with rear wheel drive, and the Mark IV Supra engine. Please tell me that the seat can be adjusted. Can the driver seat be replaced with a linebacker style / sized seat? I know that I don't fit into a Toyota Celica.
    Thank you.
