Not impressed with the seats

Coming from Audi and Lexus Im a little disappointed with the seats in this car. They seem a bit cheep and narrow. Z fan boys feel free to flame away

If you are merely making a statement and not looking to initiate some form of educational discussion, I ask you: What is the point of this thread, then?

I like my heated/cooled seats. They're actually pretty damn comfortable on a long trip. I just wish I was able to recline a little more.

I'd much rather have that bucket seat feeling then be sliding all over the place in luxury seats,

Look at the price you paid for your 370. That should tell you volumes as to why you believe the seats in an Audi or Lexus are "better".

Other than that... I like the seats in mine. To each their own.

I've got base seats (although I reupholstered for giggles).

I think they're great, but they can be a bit tight.

I've heard more comfort complaints about the touring seats than the base seats, though.

And the roadster owners I've met completely love their seats.

to each their own, though.

The base seets feel a bit more supportive than the touring seats. Marginal difference but a difference. I'll trade my Nismo seats for leathers tho!

I think he likes those wider seats that fit fat people. I guess they can be considered bucket seats too.
