I am 6’6” and noticed (especially in shorts) that me knee and leg (below the knee) frequently press against the plastic near the transmission control. I have manipulated the seat many ways and discovered the only way to avoid leaving against it is to have my heal cockeyed (toward brake pedal) and dip my knee below the plastic trim so my tibia/fibula (leg) don’t rest against it. Is anyone else having a similar issue? Has anyone padded it?
This is how it presses against the plastic trim.

We all have bumped are knees against the dash while entering the seats also.

My 350Z Track had OEM Knee Pads on the console to stop knee chafing on the hard console surface.

An Auto upholsterer should be able to trace out your console side profile to make something nice from soft leather.

You may get some ideas from these links.

Console Knee Pads:

Auto Accessory Pads:

These custom Motorcyle Tank Pads show some ideas:

Exactly. Terrible. I developed severe knee pain from this and are currently on croaches! I need to sell the ipace due to this, I borrow my wife’s car to avoid ipace. Being tall the ipace pose two challenges: The knife edge of the console and the low seat position. The latter makes entry and leaving seat a gruesome experience each time. So sad, since otherwise ipace is just perfect!
