    May have to try this when I get back. Can't remember how my seats felt after a year away.

    I miss BRZ seats
    Did you mess around with size and location of the lumbar pad?

    Yeah I tried moving it up/down, and with both 1" and 2" thickness variations. Man, my back felt like it was on fire!

    I've never really had back issues before. Whenever I had a hint of back pain for whatever reason, I'd just jump into the BRZ for a quick spin and it all felt better again. :/ I'll have to find another way with these seats.

    Well that sucks. I used to have lower back issues, but I do lots of stretches and I've been pain free for years.

    Anyway I'm confused (as usual) I unzipped both zippers and I don't understand how to get the leather up like the cloth is shown in the pic - all up like that. Is there another zipper under the seat back???

    I have lower back issues too. An awesome combination of Degenerative Disc and Schumans (probably not correct spelling). I have to do A LOT of core work at the gym.

    If you don't want to modify your seats, I find that a combination of compression tights (I use some Under Armour ones) and some Kinesiology Tape works well on the longer trips.
