    lumbar support seats

    Does anyone know if any of the B5 seats had lumber support? I've done my back in again and what to get some better seats for the car, I know I don't have the harness in for electric seats but not bothered about that as I can easily make them.

    I do around 30K miles a year in the car so want so get better seats rather than cheap covers with lumber support.

    yeah my front seats have electric lumbar supports in them.
    might be worth looking up a JML Sit right

    Amazon.co.uk: jml sit right

    you need sport seats IIRC
    why dont you get a CG lock. no joking it made a dramitic difference to my posture and the comfort of the seat.
    not only is it good for holding you in the seat during some "drive it like you stole it" moments, it pulls your arse into the seatback and your back is held up against the curve of the seat as it is designed rather than however you lazy spine wants to flot against it.

    worth a punt for 30ish
