    I read the other, old, threads on lowering the driver's seat. They all involve cutting metal and welding. It's a bit irritating to find that the right hand drive version in Japan got a height adjustable seat.

    So what of other countries not formerly part of the British Empire, where they drive on the right side of the road? Were they all flipped the bird by Toyota on the height adjustable driver's seat?

    If Japan is the only source for height adjustable seat parts, I'd get two sets, one for a direct swap on the right seat and the other to get creative with on moving and modifying pieces to work on the left seat.

    My problem is I have the torso of someone 6 foot 2 and the thighbones of someone not quite 5 foot 8. So most any car I sit in I have the rear view mirror blocking my vision and I'm hunched up to the steering wheel so I can reach the pedals. I almost need a police officer to push my head down for me when getting into the driver's seat of a Gen2 Prius. ;)

    I did a power right seat in a 2002 Ford Sport Trac. Wasn't too difficult despite it not being available in the 1st gen Trac nor in the 1998 to 2001 Explorer or Mountaineer.

    Greetings to all.
    Prius gen2 for europe has driver's seat height adjustment.
    It makes sense to think about installing Lexus Gs350 seats while maintaining all the functionality.
