Mein Auto: 2011 BMW 328i Coupe
Lumbar Support Problem, you too?

Hi - I bought a 2011 Coupe with all the goodies about 5 months ago; it was an untitled Demo with 15K. Everything works great EXCEPT The 4 way lumbar support.

I'm 76 but I don't need or want the support. I diminish the lumbar support as much as possible using the front to rear curser and hide it as best as possible with the up and down curser BUT there are still two hard spots either side of my spine which make the darned seat uncomfortable.

The younger wife also is bothered by these driver side hard spots, passenger side fine.

Has anyone out there also noticed this problem?? Or found a solution?

Well, I too dislike the lumbar support, minimize it as much as I can, and still have a hard spot I'm not thrilled with.

As you can guess, however, I haven't found a solution, past getting used to it.

Tempurpedic driving support pillow fits to perfection...It's blue color and it is flat out a difference maker so give it a try,Truth.
