IMO, the factory seats in the EP are great however, I feel they do not offer enough support underneath the front of your legs. Here's what I did to resolve the issue.

1. Remove drivers seat from car
2. Remove both front seats brackets from seat rail (this involves grinding off the factory welds and griding down the rivet that holds the bracket to the seat rail)
3. Weld a 1" piece of squate steel tubing to the seat rail on each side of the seat
4. Weld factory seat brackets to the square tubibg you just welded
5. Paint the square tubing and bracket
6. Mount seat in car and enjoy new found leg support you never had

In essence, all I really did was raise the front of the seat by 1" to improve support. This does not affect your driving position at all but IMO, adds driver comfort. I can take pics if you guys want. Overall, this mod took about an hour and a half total from start to finish. Well worth the time if you ask me :)

Does this add leg room? I could use about 1-2 inches more with having a 36" inseam.

I'd do it myself but I can't weld.
