    I'm happy with the MX3 seats, they are the fancy schmancy black leather ones

    I've never sat in a Celica. I think my car is already enough of a mixed breed...

    I actually liked the low-ness of the MX3 seats in my Escort wagon. my head would brush the ceiling, and the stock seats actually presented a visibility problem (sort of what happens when I sit in an S2000, the stupid top of the windshield blocks my view.) The MX-3 seats put my noggin right where an "average" person's head would be, and I could see much better!

    I never ran spacers or anything to deal with tilting, I want to say that people were on crack, because no such lean existed for me, but that wouldn't be nice.

    I think the leaning problem happens in the BF chassis, but not the BG chassis. I certainly don't have any lean in my escort with 100% MX3 seat components.

    I'm only 5'10" so I don't have any headroom issues, even in my miata

    huh, I'm 5'10" too and had to foamectomy the driver's seat in my Miata to fit better (if I ever get another, it's getting a bucket mounted to the floor like in the 240)

    probably longer, given the foam I took out was from the back of the seat (that removable panel in the NA seats)

    If I'd have kept the miata, I would have done a foamectomy. I felt like I was a giant in a clown car, the top of the windscreen was like right at eye level.

    I second just bolting the seats to the floorpan. That's what I would do if I get an NA again and throw in some fancy buckets..

    FE3, or anyone else... Do you know if the recaro MX-3 rails sit lower than the standard MX-3 non-recaros?

    I need to be lower for clearance.. else

    EDIT:

    a neat feature of doing that is you can gain back the extra lower lumbar tilt.
    What is lower lumbar tilt? Your talking about swapping the lower seat pans and putting the mx3 cushion in LX/escort pan?
