Unhappy Is it just me????? (mini-rant)

Or did BMW manage to make the sport seats in the e65 LESS comfortable than the sport seats in the e38? I didn't think it was possible. On new years I drove a total of 1200 miles (Knoxville to Chicago, to Iowa, to Knoxville) and although I love my car it wasn't nearly as comfy as I would've expected. Oh well... Just a rant

before you blame the seats, make sure they are set the right way! I spent nearly an hour setting my seat to get it perfect during the course of the first few weeks I had it!

I agree it takes some time to adjust ur seats. It took me bout a week to find comfortable position and I still adjust them sometimes actually depends on what ur wearing I have my seat memory set up 1 for the driving without the jacket or coat and 2 with.

I have the sport seats. They just seem to be too stiff in the lower back section. I'm only 30 and don't have any back problems, but it's always sore by about the 3rd hour of a drive in the e65
