At 6'3" I have to Tall Adapt. I drive a 2001 Honda CR-V which I purchased new and still drive 13 years on. Here are some adaptations I've made to the car which parallel some of your blog posts.
First up is the mirror. The factory placement puts the mirror directly in my line of sight. I discovered that the bracket which attaches the mirror to the interior had a pivot point allowing it to
rotate [editor: for mirror mounts that don't have this option, see this post]. So this mirror is rotated 180 degrees and thanks to the angle of the bracket it now resides up and out of my direct line of sight. Additionally, I drive with a panoramic clip-on mirror to improve rearward vision. Everybody I've recommended the panoramic mirror to has loved it regardless of their height.

right... too skinny and unsafe.
