  • anyone near Las Vegas?

    is there anyone with a Birkin near las vegas, or possibly los angeles that would let me see their Birkin, and possibly sit in it to ensure I fit allright? I have concerns about the pedals and need to know before I spend my money. thanks to anyone who can help. -rick (702-2418066)

    I am in Pasadena and have a '98 Birkin (live axle). You are welcome to try that if you are in the area, send me a PM. The newer IRS models are quite different but I believe the cockpit is very similar size.

      (thank you for the private msg slomove) would anyone else like to advise me, or offer opinions on this? i would greatly appreciate it. I have concerns about how close the pedals are together and my size 11 1/2 feet.

        Hi, I have the same size feet and the pedals are ok. I have to wear driving shoes or retro style sneakers like Vans or retro Pumas.
        I am 6'1", I had the floor lowered in my Birkin and it makes a big difference in comfort, wind buffeting and in being able to read the dash.

          Gert, isn't a Las Vegas trip more like a morning breakfast drive for you and Rosie?

            If you show me a nice curvy road to Las Vegas we might consider that.
