In any event, the passenger seat mounting is standard and thus retains ALL its functions. The drivers seat moves forward as a result of the way it functions when it is raised.
Not sure if the back section still tilts forward (I suspect not, but will test it tomorrow)

Either way, if/when I fit Pole Positions there may be some furrowed brows down at the test centre

The new regs coming state the drivers seats must have the ability to slide back and forth, an exception to this will be purpose built road legal trackday cars and this will come under the discretion of the MOT tester, passenger seat can be fixed.....My mate who does all my MOT's was giving me the low down of what is coming.......
