So this Sirion I’m about to buy… I test drove it, and I fit, kinda, and I’m ok with it, but I’d much rather have 2-4cm more seat-steering wheel clearance than it has. Unfortunately they are non-adjustable from the factory.
Has anyone devised a bolt-in solution yet? NZ certification laws say that I can mix and match rails from anything without getting a technical inspection if I don’t have to weld anything. It says nothing about the steering column, but I can’t imagine welding it would be ok. If the car has spacers in the column they could be removed though, and I’m happy to shorten things and drill new mounting holes.
The rails look to be elevated off the floor a cm or two, so that space is available to drop the seat if the right rails/mounts could be found. I didn’t get a good look at the steering column because taking apart the dash isn’t a thing you do on test drives.
*edit: Cert laws for stressed seat (which means any part of the belt assembly that attaches to the seat rather than the chassis, ie a seat belt buckle that moves with the seat), which I didn’t realise the Sirion has, say only OE seats and rails from the same make and model
