    Aftermarket seat? Need more head room.

    Hey Saabers --

    I have an og-93 (1999 coupe 9-3) and I'd like more headroom. I'm interested in an aftermarket seat, assuming that would be the only way to get a lower seat (unless anyone is aware of some kind of bracket modification)

    Any information, tips or experience welcome -- THX!

    Update -- someone told me that they do custom rails and that I can pick any seat I like. Now the question is what seat. I'm looking for it to be as low as possible and of course good quality. Any tips welcome.

    I have been looking at this as well. There are a number of rail options available both for specific brands and more universal. The mount points on the 9-3 are flat so I was just going to use some steel plate to make my own. I'm going to use them to move the stock Viggen seat a little farther back to see how that works first. By using the plate I may lose a bit of height actually but I'm hoping a better position makes up for it
