Yep, from a little further back, same height as my wife also, so that works outNo doubt that it intrudes into the passenger foot well considerably more than the Bracketeer optoin. However, it's not unmanageable. With the FE removed, the remaining Drake quick release mount is really not an issue in my opinion (for everyday driving). Evem with the FE in place, I think it's fine for most adults. I'll take some photos tomorrow and test it with my 5'4" wife. She'll let me know if it's a problem. By "longer" image, I'm taking you to mean, taken from a greater distance away from the setup for better spatial perspective. Car's in the garage at the moment and the door's a little wedged in there.
