I saw the owner's manual. It does mention that the backrest width is adjustable, but the diagram they have shown is for one without power seats.

Can someone confirm that the backrest width is adjustable when you have power seats?
There is defintely a power button (at left front of seats (driver and passenger) to adjust the electric sport seat bolsters. Actually works quite well.

Sports Package

I decided to get my 330 (SG,Terra,Al) without the sports package. I wanted to save a little money and I didn't want to have to replace the tires after only 10-15K miles. It is definitely fun enough for me !!

I have Sports Package and I like it, but I don't think it is necessary to have fun driving the car. It's going to handle very well anyway. It won't be as stiff and will be slightly taller (less than 1 inch) and the wheels and tires will be slightly smaller and narrower, but to tell you the truth, this might make it more fun to drive in some situations.

For example, you have to be cornering VERY FAST to get any kind of slide in this car. I am very reluctant to really push the car into any kind of a drift. As a result, I always feel like I am driving slowly and it doesn't feel as exciting. I am probably going faster than I could in a non-sport, but it doesn't feel as exciting...

I think sports package really just gives you a little less body roll going from corner to corner, and gives you a higher limit of adhesion. The downside is that it is a little stiffer and harsher over bumps.

When your tires wear out, which going to take longer than if they were the sport tires, then you could replace them with the stickier ones and probably get most of the extra handling performance that the sport package offers.

I say again, if you aren't getting the ZSP, buy a Lexus.
