Default Comin' from the Low Lands

Hello everyone,

I'm from the Netherlands. Always been a fervent lover of British cars, and after two Triumph Dollies, a couple of Mini's (still have a Van) and some other non-British obscure transports, I'm enjoying the rides in a 2005 S-Type 2.4. I did have some minor issues after purchase like a belt with some wear (cracks in the rubber), new tires (first and last time I bought Viking), and a radiator which needed replacing. In short some TLC needed after a year at a dealer's waisting time.

In the mean time I've added an auxilliary power outlet in the trunk, and now I'm looking for a way to get me chair back, all the way plus 2" - 4". since I am 6' 4+" I could do with a bit of leg room. Anybody found a solution to that?
Probably see you around when I am browsing the forum
