    I'm planning on pulling a driver's seat out of a wrecked Mirage that had the adjustable seat height option, shouldn't be too difficult to find one in a year or two.My issue was the seat sits too low as supplied.....

    I wouldn't mind one that sits a bit lower myself.

    The seat adjuster on the ES is weird. It only raises and lowers the bottom of the seat cushion, not the whole seat. So the position of the bolsters and lumbar support change as well. Took me quite a while to find the sweet spot.

    It's an odd design.

    Looks like there's 2 pages of Mirage front seats. Not sure though how you tell which ones are height adjustable.

    It looks like the description is unique to the writer at the wreckers yard, they don't distinguish one type of seat from another.

    What about seats out of a wrecked Eclipse? More than likely uses the same mounting rails.
