After install observations...

The front seats are very supportive and comfortable, with the six way adjustment making it possible to adjust the seat just right. Except... the seats do sit a bit taller than stock zx2 seats (1/2-1" is my guess) so if your body type is of the long torso/short legs variety, this may not be for you. I am 6'0" tall with a 34" leg inseam, and once the seat is adjusted to my liking I have about an 3 finger clearance between my head and the sunroof edge.

I do have uber legroom now, so if you are of the long legged variety you'll have plenty of stretch out room. I am going to enjoy this car on long trips now, since it's also quieter inside as well thanks to the thicker seat padding as well as the more ample use of insulation on the mx3 carpets I added.

And doesn't it look great now too? It definately takes the interior style up a notch.

Great information Rob. Thanks for figuring out more choices for the interior.
