6’-1”, 220 here. I have yet to get a crosstrek, but have test driven a premium (manual seats). The thing I remember is I thought the front of the seat bottom could not be raised (tilted back?) enough to support my thighs. Raising it just pitched it forward - made it worse. I wondered if anyone has fabbed up some sort of spacers to install under the front of the slider rails?
1.The way that the seat moves does not allow me to take pressure off the ball of my foot, meaning I constantly feel like im having to "hold" my ankles/foot up as to not continue to accelerate. I can't find a good spot where I can just relax and cruise.
2. I am very seriously considering if there is anyway to find an 8 way power seat (from my research the crosstrek USED to have them UNTIL 2018? is my understanding in some models) and using that motor/bottom of the seat and keeping the top leather/stitching) like this video shows:
I am fully open to suggestion of how I could use spacers to tilt the seat up as well. I have 0 "fabricating" experience or knowledge but I am not opposed to getting my hands dirty.

6'4", 190# down, back 3" from the end and upright backrest is my favorite. I neVAr go higher than all the way down in any ride. Sometimes further back, sometimes more recline. I preferred the non electric seat of the '15 for adjustment. The wheel is so I can see the gauge, and the wheel hits my wrist with arm extended.
6’2” and 195 lbs. Seat all the way back and down with the steering wheel fully extended and down.
6'3 230lbs... I vary from a few notches from all the way back with the seat about half way up to all the way back and all the way up if I'm on trail. I tend to adjust a lot when driving so I don't get cramped, but I don't find all the way back and down comfortable - the wheel doesn't extend far enough for that...
