Anyway to modify bracket for seat height?

I am 6'3 and cant seem to get low enough in the OEM m3 seats. Are there any aftermarket rail options to lower the overall position of the stock seats?

I would be ok with a fixed position even on the drivers side. Any suggestions appreciated.

Not that I know of but if okay with fixed seat can get Recaro and adjust seat height lower.

I am 6'1 and you are 6'3 and that's not the problem !
It's just that the floor of our cars are to high constructed inside the cabin , it's a general problem of the 3 series !
The headroom to the roof is big enough , but the seat position relative to the steering wheel and windshield...dash .. creates this strange feeling of sitting to high even when the seat is in the lowest position ,and even smaller people are saying the same thing .
When i'm driving the Mini from my wife i'm always thinking i'm sitting a lot lower in the Mini and feels better, and when i'm driving after in my car i'm always checking if the seat is in the lowest position...and each time , yes it is , and each time again i'm surprised that i'm sitting already in the lowest position !
So like I was saying it's a general problem and so not normal !
Note; when looking outside through the side windows this feeling gets even worse and don't have this in a Mini or any other car!
