Going to be very difficult to diagnose w/o pics of right and left buttocks to evaluate for asymmetry. Post some please.....

Hey Chris, what product are you using on it? I want to be ahead of the game on this, even after 3 months I am starting to notice wrinkling in the same spot (I'm not exactly a "big-guy" either...)

I understand fans in BMW < Lexus/ MB, true?
I tested out the A8 before going the 740 route, that cars ventilated seats were amazing... 100 times better than mine now (not enough to make me roll that way though!). The test drive I could feel the air pushing through the seats without any sort of body manipulation (i.e. sitting slightly forward, moving my butt around, etc), and I was in jeans and a regular cotton shirt... V/r, Tim
