    So after doing this all, my lower back seems fine. However, it's my shoulders now. If I hold the steering wheel at the 5 & 7 o'clock positions, my shoulders seem fine. :( I'm so close.

    Just kill me.

    Actually, I may have it figured out. I'll test it over the next few days.

    im a small guy, 5'7 at 150 pounds and i love the seats, so comfy! granted the longest ive ever sat in them is probably 2 hours or so, maybe a long distance trip would have me thinking otherwise.

    I love these seats. Drivin 900 mile trips a few times and haven’t had one issue.

    Maybe try some yoga. LOL

    I've broken my back and had 7 surgeries on it including fusions and these are the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in. I love these things. I can drive for 2-3 hours straight with no issue, where I've had issues with all of my past cars. One of the biggest selling points for me was when I sat in it for the first time.

    same here, I fractured my spine years ago (all healed up now thank God), but these are definitely the best seats that I have sat in. they have incredible back support.

    They feel comfortable to me, yet ironically I feel some lower back pain after sitting in them for +30 minute drives.

    Kinda sucks.

    6 foot and weigh a very lean 212-216. Never had car seats bother me before

    I'm 5'9", 170 and once adjusted right I feel like the seats were made for me. I had a 2017 SI and the interior is almost identical to the Type R so I was used to where I needed to set my stuff up. I absolutely love the seats.

    I actually finally found a decent position a week or so ago. I think my desk setup at work was playing into my back hurting. The seats are fine, but something at work needs to change.

    I feel you on that one. I sit at my desk all day for work too. Have spent years working on ergonomics and basically I just have to get up and walk around and stretch throughout the day. Glad you found your sweet spot! My 2015 SI gave me issues... None so far with the new Type R though.

    I have to admit, if I get in the car to pick someone up at the airport and don't stop for a break on the way down or back, by the time I get home I'm ready to GTFO of that car and just sit on my recliner in the living room! It's not so much that it's uncomfortable necessarily...not sure how to describe it. It's worse if you're in garbage traffic for a long time where you have to shift gears a lot.
