For those that have this in their 997 cup, can you post a picture that shows how close seat is to tunnel side , and one that shows how close upper part of seat is to b-pillar and door opening.

Here are a couple of pictures taken right after they installed the seat in my car. The seat fits like it was made for this application. No problems with the tunnel or the door/window/B pillar. You can put your fist between the halo and
the window. The second picture shows the seat all the way back.

FWIW, great seat. Way more rigid the than the OE OMP. Also, safer and more comfortable. Good choice:

Thank you for this. How much space is there between side of the seat and the tunnel?

Seat to tunnel is pretty tight, maybe an inch of space. Here's a picture that gives you some idea. Seat/tunnel spacing wasn't the subject of the picture but if you look at the foam wrap, it's about 1 1/2" in diameter. It's wedged between the shifter controller that extends to 1/2" from the edge of the tunnel and the side of the seat where it flares out a bit.

Since you are talking about installing in a finished interior, I think your best course would be to measure the width of your tunnel and compare that number to the width of a cup tunnel. If the difference is around 2" (1" on either side), you're in business. Unfortunately, I don't know the width of the tunnel and the car is not kept at my place for me to go out and measure, so maybe somebody that has a cup handy can chime in with that number:
