According to the Universality Theorem by Mnev (see below theorem 8.6.6 from [1]), for any open semialgebraic variety V there is a uniform oriented matroid of rank 3 whose realization space is stably equivalent to V.

My question is whether one can transfer the result also to uniform oriented matroids of rank 4 and higher, i.e.,
**for a fixed r $\ge$ 4 and for any open semialgebraic variety V is there a uniform oriented matroid of rank r whose realization space is stably equivalent to V?**

**8.6.6 Universality Theorem** (Mnev 1988).

- Let $V \subset \mathbb{R}^s$ be any semialgebraic variety. Then there exists a rank 3 oriented matroid M. whose realization space R(M) is stably equivalent to V.
- If V is an open subset of $\mathbb{R}^s$, then M may be chosen to be uniform.
