How does everyone have their headrest adjusted?

Just curious how does everyone have their headrests adjusted? On my 126 which has the now older design headrest I have the drivers side slightly up and tilted to the max. Passenger is normal down position.

I have mine the same as yours.

Driver is up about one inch and tilted all the way forward so that it fits right in the curve from my head to my neck, the passenger is all the way down, flush with the seat.

I am very picky about all the placement of my seat, wheel, and headrests. I'm 6'3", 250lbs, I fill my 300E drivers area quite well.

Im picky aswell but I find the headrests when tilted like that to make my neck soar sometimes from it being pushed against my head but I leave it for safety such as whiplash lol.

here is a study on the proper adjustment of head rests

http://www.ibc.ca/headrest.asp

as usual women did better than the men.

the name "head rest" should be changed. the primary purpose is the prevent whiplash.
