with the stock sparco seatmounts
actually the drivers seat is about 2cm higher than the passenger seat
since the tv demands that the drivers seat has to be adjustable
thanks anyway

my seatmonts looks totally different than mine since the race style mounts are not street legal in germany.
my are two partet. basicly a 40/40 angle bar with 3 holes in the front ad a H-bar in the back.
sorry i cant find any pics either, if i would be closer to the car i would snap some but
i am not even in the same country:-(
the seats are the only size that has been available at the time i bought them...
lets put it this way i need to do some serius training to be abled driving the car next year
