Z3 COUPE Toronto?

Hello, I'm new here and this is my first post.... so I hope I'm doing this right.
I'm looking to buy a Z3 coupe but I'm a very tall guy. I've read a lot about potential modifications that can be done to achieve more space but need to see if I remotely fit. My question is does anyone in the GTA Toronto know of anywhere/anyone who owns (or selling) one that would possibly let me try it on for size?
I know that's a big ask but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I have an M coupe. I am 5'11" and I fit in the car with about 1-2 inches to spare. My car has a sunroof and with a helmet on, I touch the roof of the car.

The coupes with a sunroof have more headroom than the ones without. This will be a factor if you plan on wearing a helmet.

There are some threads on bimmerforums about people removing foam from the seat cushions to get more headroom, but I have not tried this before.

Also be aware that the steering wheel is not adjustable at all on the car.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the Z3 coupe seats are different than the M version. I do not have any experience with the Z3 coupe seats, but I cant imagine them allowing for substantially more/less headroom than the M version.

I'm 6'2" but more leg than torso. I cannot fit in a stock Z Coupe for more than 20-30 mins at a time comfortably. I had the same experience when I bought my Z Roadster, but after the "seat tilt mod" and foam padding delete behind the seat I have an acceptable amount of leg room and can do long road trips and walk fairly normally afterwards.
