The specs show a product width of only 16.625 inches - do the bowl and seat width remain unchanged from other models?

Other comparable Kohler models show a width dimension of approx. 19.625 inches. Is the 16.625 dimension a typo, or is the tank narrower (without sacrificing bowl width)?

Answer: 
Actually you can't use a 12" rough if you only have a 10" clearance (measured from the bottom of the wall including the wall molding to the screw holes in the floor). I had only a 10" clearance in one of my hall bath, and had to special order the Highline designed for 10" rough. HD got it to the store pretty quick but because it was a special order it cost more and doesn't come with a seat.(You can see Read More

I had only a 10" clearance in one of my hall bath, and had to special order the Highline designed for 10" rough. HD got it to the store pretty quick but because it was a special order it cost more and doesn't come with a seat.(You can see the various combos at the Kohler website). I looked at several other stores and they all only carry the 12" rough as standard in store stock. It nevertheless has been a great toilet and I would gladly order another one. Easy to install, great flushing power, and stays clean. Don't forget to pick up the elongated toilet seat when you get the new toilet. Read Less

The toilet comes in 3 pieces, and 2 of them are pretty heavy and awkward to carry. In total it weighs about 100 lbs. I always recommend that 2 people both take the old one out (and carry it down the stairs in your case) and carry the 2 heavy pieces up. The lid is easy enough for 1 person.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 557 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacements for old toilets! I purchased 2. I am very happy with this purchase. Ordering on-line for my contractor to pick up added ease to the project. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, design. Love the model, quiet, efficient, water saver. Should have done it sooner. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Toliet - Easy install Only issue I had with Toliet was that I was installing in bathroom that had been renovated with a new tile floor. Had to buy a extra large wax ring that came with longer bolts. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product-but I am a female senior do it my-self-er and had NO problems installing this myself-except for lifting the bowl on to the bolts. I did wonder where the mounting bolts and tank mounting bolts were-instructions were not too good there. I am still amazed at the complete and clean flushes considering the 1.2 gallons of water. I have NO complaints only good things to say EXCEPT-Lowes has the same unit for $10 more but it comes with a much better quality and self lowering seat. I didn't know that until I already brought this one home. Just saying... February 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far every bit as good as Toto Ultrimax ll I have 2 Toto Ultramax ll double cyclone flush toilets and am very satisfied with their quality and performance. Recently I needed to replace the old toilet in the kids bathroom and needed Biscuit color to match existing fixtures. Locally the best price for biscuit/ Sedona beige Toto was $605 so I bought the Kohler Highline in biscuit for $265 figuring if it didn't perform, it would be no hassle to return and I could always replace it with the much more expensive Toto. The Highline performs as good as the Toto and actually cleans the bowl better than the Toto UM ll with saniflush. Also the flush is slightly quieter and fill is also noticeably quieter although it refills a little slower. Granted comparing the Highline to the Ultramax ll isn't "apples to apples" styling wise (one piece v. two piece). The Highline actually performs better than my other Toto's at less than half the price. If you are looking for a good performing reasonably priced toilet this is it. February 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Choice – Purchased Oct. 2013 – Reviewed Mar. 2014 KOHLER Highline 2-Piece Elongated Toilet in Biscuit SKU # 490968, Model # K-11499-96, Internet # 202493970 We could not be more pleased to have purchased the KOHLER Highline 2-Piece Elongated Toilet. It flushes quietly and is very comfortable. It comes in white or biscuit color. We bought the biscuit which matched our sink and tub perfectly. Some reviews mention that the seat that comes with the toilet is cheap or flimsy. We did not find it cheap. We found it to be of a lighter weight than the one we had before. Even though the toilet seat is just a cover to the toilet we are able to sit on top of the closed lid when necessary. Previously, we had a conventional round toilet – 3 gallons per flush that was installed in 1985 that we wanted to replace. We were not sure if we should buy a round or elongated shape, expensive or middle in cost, or a 1.28 gallons per flush or more gallons per flush, buy a higher toilet bowl height that is 16.5 inches or a standard height which is around 15 inches total from the ground to the top of the seat. We live on a high hill with well water and the water pressure is not as strong of a pressure as we would like. We are so pleased with quality and function of the Kohler Highline 2-Piece Elongated Toilet after 6 months of usage that we are purchasing the same toilet for our 1st floor restroom. We strongly recommend this toilet. We had the toilet installed via a Home Depot contract which was at a reasonable cost. The installer answered all of our questions in depth which were more than a few. He demonstrated to us how to take apart the toilet seat (very easy) if needed to clean more thoroughly around the lip of the bowl. He made sure that everything worked and that there were no leaks before he left. We are going to ask to have him install our 2nd toilet as well. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality toilet by Kohler We already had this model from a recent remodel and when our other 20 year old commode began wasting water we decided to go with the same proven model. Flush system uses a minimal amount of water with great results and the elongated bowl is quite accommodating. This replaced a contractor cadet sized toilet and the difference was night and day. Be sure to get a decent sized wax ring as the waste port sits a tad high on this model. Our closet flange sits about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the tile so we opted for an extra long wax ring with built in horn without issues. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very satisfied Wonderful, doesn't clog, and saves on water. Only thing to remember, learn how to replace the canister and red seal. November 18, 2015
