I've put in a full contoured body cushion to move me ~1 1/2-2" forward. That plus a click or 2 of recline seems to work.
I understand the safety aspect, but IMO they suck and it would be nice if there were options for swapping out to units that were not so aggressively forward. One size does not not fit all.
I just turned the driver's side headrest around; that was a good tip. We'll see how it works out. It's certainly more comfortable and allows me to sit up straighter, but I wonder what safety trade-offs I'm making. I really don't like having to drive with the seat reclined back far enough that the headrest isn't uncomfortable.
