Help with 987 Factory Seats - Lumbar Support


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to Porsche and the forum. About 6 weeks ago, I purchased a new 2007 Boster. I have 1800 miles on it and love the car with one exception. Within 10 minutes of driving, my lower back is in such pain. There is not enough lumbar support. I've tried various things such as towels and cushions, but nothing seems to work. I've thought about aftermarket seats, however the airbag issue, as well as loss of the heated seat option is holding me back somewhat. I know heated seats can be had in Recaro, etc, but that would make it a much too costly endeavor. Does anyone have any recommendations?? I did have a chance to sit in an older style Recaro (FXL or something like that) today, and I noticed a huge difference in comfort right away.

Thanks for your help

Steve

Before replacing the seat, I would try changing the seat adjustment significantly. Sometimes its the way you hold your arms or brace your body that causes back pain. Try something really different like leaning the seat back or maybe make it more vertical. Don't forget about seat height adjustment and steering wheel adjustments. Just move around and you may find comfort at no cost!

Thanks for the feedback - I'll give both a try!!

I recently saw something interesting with regard to that.

Send me an e-mail and I will put you in touch with the guy who made a bladder for just that

How tall are you? I am 6'5" and any driving over 5 hours is a bit uncomfortable for me as well.....I try to stop and stretch after every couple of hours if I am on a road trip.
