I don't understand this, surely car manufacturers know that Humans are gettting taller/bigger?? Oh and before the Zed guys attack me, i have the same observation about my MX5.
Different seats for different market segments. Obviously, in a two seat sports coupe/convertible, I think it would be an overwhelmingly poor response if they had made big, flat SUV style seats. People are absolutely getting bigger, unfortunately wider being the faster growing dimension, but this is why they invented the test drive, if your fat *** doesn't fit don't buy. I'm a pretty big dude and have no problems whatsoever fitting in my car.

I just did a 2600 mile road trip with my lady (Gville to Philly, over to Columbus then back home) and my seats treated me really well. I am 5-10 150lbs and wasnt bothered at all til I hit hour 12+. We made a really similar trip in April in a rented quite loaded Enclave and I was more uncomfortable in those flat a$$ seats than the Z. Base+ sport. Just sayin...

I like my seat a lot, but i'm not coming from an Audi or Lexus.. didn't you sit in the seats before you bought the car to know that you didn't like them?

Obviously a more expensive car is going to come with "top of the line" of course that all depends on the car. I can tell you I have scoliosis so ANY seat to me becomes uncomfortable after a while. The recaro's in my Evo X were very comfortable, but they were seriously cheap with staples that came out and all that.

Anyway... I would go aftermarket, or just find a seat you like, buy a set and have a custom shop install them, but you won't have the protection of the airbag... which would keep me from getting anything else.

This is a great thread! OP, You could atleast start off with the minimum requirements of the thought process (who,what,when,why,how) as supposed to making a statement about your seats and expecting the same response from others? I love how this thread has it all thus far from douchebaggery to aryan seats( not the rocket ones ) tp diet suggestions. Oh yea, the nismo seats are a bit narrow but no sense on harping about it to people who cant do anything about it. BTW - IBTL
