Default Bucket seats and low rails

There is plenty of talk about extra headroom you can get with lower rails and bucket seat but I don't find anything about legroom, especially leg to steering wheel clearance.
Would you share your experience about rails+bucket legroom and most importantly leg to steering wheel clearance?

Situation with BC rails and bucket seats?
Can you sit further back in your bucket seats?

PP's and BC rails = far more room everywhere except width wise for your legs. Steering wheel clearance all depends on how you position the seat in the rails, so that's debatable on how you mount the seat.

I used to be able to put the stock seat all the way back (not the recline) and still reach the pedals, I cannot reach the pedals when I do that with the PP. You sit considerably lower than stock, previously I used the BYS rail, but the PP with BC rail (again depends which holes you use on the rails) sits much lower, at least another inch over the BYS rail. I'd guess I'm 2-2.5" lower than the stock seat.
