However I haven't had any back pain so far so it seems your suggestion is working. Didn't drive more than 30 minutes today though.
I used to have similar issues in the 535. Not in my M3 for some reason - better seats?

What people often miss is the steering wheel adjustment. I found a higher seating position combined with steering adjustments made a big difference. Steering further forward or backward. I am also slightly over 6 ft.
When in doubt - pass out!
