Can lowered seat cushion be installed on existing sport seats? (IXSU option)

Recommended Posts

I am only 5'8" but I find the driving position about 1/2" too high in my new-to-me 2003 996 Carrera coupe, even with the seat adjusted all the way down.  The car has factory sport seats.  I see in the parts catalog that part numbers are listed for the IXSU option where you can order the lowered seat foam (w/heater element) from Porsche. 


I am thinking I could have my local upholstery shop install these seat cushions.  Does anyone know if the actual leather seat covers were different on the IXSU option or just the foam?


I have factory sport seats.  I am not sure if the IXSU lowered seat option was available with sport seats??  Maybe with comfort seats only??

So to answer my own question I found out that the lowered seat pads were only offered by Porsche in the Comfort seats, but not in the optional Sport seats.  I am thinking of having an upholstery shop trim some foam out of the driver's seat cushion.
