Adjustable seat height in Scuderia, only in some cars...

Checking pictures from this and other forum I just realized that there are two different set mounts in the Scuderia. One with adjustable seat height and one with fixed height.

My Scuderia came with non adjustable seats, and from what I can see at the part list at eurospares only the 16M came with this but it doesn't look that way from the picture I see. Can anyone explain?

It's listed on the US window sticker as "Driver seat adjustment device" and it shows as standard. To raise the seat (or change the angle of the bottom), one has to remove the seat. It's not hard, just cover all the carbon with towels.

Mine came adjustable! Didn't know there was a non-adjustable version...learning something new about the Scuderia/16M everyday.

Could it be that only later cars were delivered with this option. My car is also an 2008 initially sold in Italy...

Johan- Sounds like it. I was going to say just add them, but they are 650 euros each. Ouch.

Quite likely, because I just looked at a Grigio 08 earlier today and it did not have the adjustable endplates!

Another reason to play the patient game and wait for the 2nd gen 458MC...let the early adopters iron out all the kinks!

I raised the front of the seat another notch today, I have the base on the lowest setting, the only hassle is that one has to take the seat out to do this but the results are great
