    I have the exact same issue, but in an E36 and a reclineable Sparco. For some reason, none of these bracket manufacturers list the dimensions. Presumeably so its harder to copy the design. I ended up with brackets that are 2.4 inches tall. With sliders on top and a relatively bolstered seat my head is touching the ceiling and knees the steering wheel. I’m 6″4. I look like a circus bear in the car it’s barely driveable. I feel like im in a Miata. On the plus side, i dont need a sun visor at the moment!

    Strange experiences. I own a 2011 STI, was lucky to find Evo SE Recaro’s which match Subaru interior.

    No down time. Waited till they arrived and swapped the seats that afternoon.

    Seat height? I’m 6′ 1″, my STI is lowered a whopping 3/4 inch. Yet seat is so low I virtually fall into the seat. The driving position is OK.

    But hey, that’s the way things go when ya modify your car. A lot of research, planning, and sometimes things don’t go right. But I wouldn’t blame Planted here. I didn’t blame them for finding the position was so low. I’m not a young guy pretending it’s a race car, though, and slamming it.

    (The STI seats were transferred to my “STI Outback”, and are fantastic in that car, btw.)

    The STI is up for sale as of this week 👍

    Haha, I just found this video after having my NRG seat+planted bracket sitting in the garage for a year(for a civic si ep3). I went to install it today an it was the most painful install ever. Then at the end, the seat was too far away. There was no way to push it closer unless I attached sliders (if I understand correctly). I just ended up putting my stock seat in until I can figure it out, what a waste of $180.

    just found this video, i bought the planted brackets for my Porsche 996 and they now sit too high about 1.5 inches, came to me last night i am going to grind off the part of the bracket that the bolts fasten to the car and redrill the holes so the bracket will sit flat.. and that will lower the back end of the seat.

    Did you order the talls or the lows? They make two separate kinds
