Question Recaro Profi SPG XL and Recaro Porsche GT3 seat questions

(I'm talking about the Recaro Porsche GT3 seat not copies of it.)

For those who have tried them:

1. Which seat gives more head support from the rear (taller back)?

2. Does the SPG XL hunch other people shoulders forward in an uncomfortable way or is it just me? Do some SPG XL have a different shape that does not do this?

Sorry, I cannot speak to the Recaro. I am 6'2" though and the GT-3 seats fits me fine.

Thread revival... For forum knowledge sake.

Both seats offer the same "head support".
The SPG XL is slightly taller in the sense that the shoulder harness openings are placed a little higher. In terms of overall sizing, both seats are remarkably equivalent. Maaaaybe... the SPG XL is very slightly more ample. I can only imagine that the regular SPG is for the rather tiny folk.

With regards to shoulders hunching forward, both seats will equally do that. That effect isnt present at all with both hands on the wheel. Passengers just sitting there with their hands laying in their laps will feel akwardly hunched forward. Both seats clearly formed for the driving not lounging.

Cheers!
