After much experimentation, I made my own. They are actually pretty simple, center the seat to the steering wheel, and lower the seat about an inch (for us tall guys, but could be modified to raise the height). About $25 in materials per seat. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll dig up an old email I had sent out with some directions, and will email it to you.

: Ok, am I missing something here?

: Just got my left side recaro back from the upholstery shop (new webbing on bottom, today was first time seat installed in car - amazing, by the way). Seat is about an inch or so too far to the right, in relation to the steering wheel.

: So the question is, did I screw up somewhere, and this isn't normal, or....

: Do I simply elongate the holes in the adapter brackets with the ever-handy dremel and fix it that way?

: Something tells me this is a 'normal' thing, and there's a foggy memory in the back of my head that wants to agree.

: Thanks,
