Sorry if I misled you - I meant that the manual Recaros in the Gen 5 Z/28 had less headroom than the power Recaros in the Gen 5 1LE and ZL1.

Yes and no. The MRC should make the 6th gen 1LE a better daily driver than the 5th gen 1LE, but it probably won't ride smoother than the 6th gen 2SS in any mode.
