428mm.

But unless you're a basketball player, you'll be happy with the Nogaro specific slider mounts-- I'm 6'4 and now have space above my head with a helmet on (used to have to recline to fit in the car with a helmet).

Thank you. Just purchased a sedan powered seat rail and E30 window switch. Ordering the BK mount kit from OG Racing tomorrow. Pretty excited for this!

Got mine in temporarily! Having trouble w the rear inner slider to chassis hole lining up. Still need to wire up power so it's fixed for the moment. My 6yr old daughter can get in and out without much of a squeeze.

Make sure the inboard and outboard sliders are in the same position. They key together, but if you're off by even a single tooth the won't fit in the car.



Once you're certain of that, loosen all the side mount to slider bolts. They all have a bit of slop, so loosening them and shaking the seat can often get everything properly lined up-- then retighten once it is.

In my haste, I'm pretty sure I goofed up the black washer spacers, pushing the rear portion of the sliders outward. Also, I didn't use the black spacer between the front outer mount and slider. This is what I get for rushing.
