Hard seats

Post by dazthephot » Tue 23 May, 2017 09:49

Just out of interest as i've never sat in another zed, how hard are the seats supposed to be?
Ours has the black standard leather electric seats with the blue piping and they are rock hard. Are they typical or can they be made softer/spongier/comfier?

I'm new to z3's and find the seat in my 2001 model to be quite firm. Theres not much give in the seat cushion though it is comfortable. I thought for a 16yr old car the seat was in good condition and still felt quite supportive.

It did toy with the idea of getting some M seats but I wondered if they were any more comfortable

The leather sports seats in my 3.0 are great, l've never thought of them as hard. But they are certainly not armchairs!

The Sport seats are definitely firmer than a non-Sport seat. I like a hard, tight seat. The ones in my 330 Gran Turismo are perfect.

Ha ha I realise comfy and sporty seats don't usually go together. I'll have to sit in some others to see.
