hi Pepe,
thanks ... by incline do you mean you have the base of the seat tilted backwards? ..... if so is there a setting for that? :/
cheers

Yeah I mean the incline of the base of the seat not the backrest. I have it tilted backwards maybe because you are a tad shorter tilting it forwards might for better for you. All assuming that you have a seat with adjustable base and not the standard seats.

maybe you've mentioned it somewhere before but I cant recall, what seats do you actually have at this moment?

In the following post I summed up all the available seats to another bloke:

Curious whether you prefer the SRi seats above the AGR leather seats then. I compared both of them when test driving, the SRi cloth seats were definately more soft. I think the leather AGR ones and the cloth SRi are a direct swap and I am sure somewone is willing to trade.

hi Pepe,
ah ok - many thanks - was hoping that the sri ones were bit more like the ones in golf mk6 sport - nice and firm :)

.....just spotted that the insignia elite has different leather seats ...... interesting .....

Maybe you're chubby and they're firm and good for you ;)
Just kidding what I'm saying whats comfortable for one is rubbish for the other. Hopefully you get it right in the end and you can enjoy your motor again.
