Ok, where do I start? I've been a keen follower of the Mini2.com forums for
some time now and am a proud new owner of a MCS Convertible (just 12
days ago).Overall I am really happy with my new MINI - it's a superb car and everything
I anticipated. However, one thing I'm having a real problem with is the sport
seats (black leatherette). I've had major problems finding a comfortable driving
position and even had to go to the doctor last week with severe lower back
and leg pains. I'm a very active person (runner, triathlete) and can't
attribute these pains to anything other than the new seats. I almost feel as
if they've been installed at some weird angle and that my body isn't facing
completely forward when I'm driving. The only respite I seem to get is when
I move my body way over to the left of the seat to try and compensate for
the twisted feeling. I've tried many different positions - fore/aft,
high/low etc. but nothing seems to help.
My wife has an 03 MCS and I've never had any problems driving her car or any
of the demo cars at the dealership (Checkered Flag, Virginia Beach). I've
been in touch with my MA and I'll be going back in the next couple of days
to get his opinion on the matter. I hope I can resolve the situation somehow
as it's really making things miserable with regards to the new car.
I've searched the forums for help but could only find the following old threads:
Any comments/thoughts would be appreciated.
