I had Cobra Trophis in the EF. There fixed back which anoiyed the crap out of me, but my GLi drivers seat broke and mate loaned them to me (they were $1,600 brand new for the pair). Anyways they sat up higher which anoiyed me as my head just brushed the ceiling. If they were adjustable backs probably would of been alright as would of just tiled back a bit more and then head wouldn't of been touching. They were a perfect bolt onto the factory rails but.
And so much more room for the rear passengers as the seat backs were so thin.

Mine are OBX and they sit higher due to the EF seat rail on the inside has to fit over the hump in the centre. I had to use a EA inner rail and remove the rear leg to fit and weld a peice of flat bar so I could mount it.

When it was first done it felt funny but I find it ok now even went to Qld over chrismas and found them very comfy.
