Anyone else find the stock seats in the QV to be very uncomfortable? Specifically I think the lumbar support is too strong and it digs into my back even when I set it all the way back (into the seat). I'm almost tempted to buy a cushion.

Not trying to be a wise guy here....body type ? The Italians are notoriously skinny and don't make wide, deep seats....I have a Quad with the standard sport seats and I find them to be perfect...5 ' 10 " 175 lbs....just a thought.....D

6'3" 220 lbs and I find the seat comfortable. I do find that the lumbar support isn't as comfortable as my older mercury, but I like the way the seats hug me.

6ft and 170. It's mostly the lumbar that I find overpowering.

I know you said you have set the lumbar to the lowest setting, but have you tried moving it up and down?

The controls for the lumbar (tiny, unmarked buttons) are confusing, it took me a while to get it right.

I love the seats. I find them super comfortable and very adjustable. I’m one of the not so skinny Italians too :wink2:

I've tried up down and middle and even reclining the seats but it still digs in. I think I'm getting used to it though because it hurt a little less today

Years ago when I bought my STi I would get back pain from the lumbar contour position which was not adjustable. After breaking the seat in it was all fine so hopefully the Alfa is a similar situation even if it's adjustable.

"wise guy", "Italians" - careful there.

I'm hoping that's the case

After 6k miles, and I have a bad back..no really, 8 vertebra have been rebuilt, and plus my wife is a Dr that stands all day long examining patients, and we both love our seats, they are so much better than the Boxster S and our Lexus. I am 5-10 170 she is 5-6 130..

You must have a "bubble butt".>:)
Nah. It isn’t a glove I was joking. Room to spare but I think it feels like I am not moving around even when my husband is driving we are both very comfortable in the passenger seat (forget the stress level with the other one driving) but we are on opposite ends of the size spectrum and we both really live them. I hated the fact that it wasn’t all electronic and then I got past that real quick with the first drive.

Anybody that find the seats "bumpy" ?
By that I mean if you go fast over bigger bumps or rather dips in the road and the suspension has compression and rebound it feels that the seat amplifies the movement.

you may need to find a small cushion for the very bottom of the seat just up to the lumbar curve area, that may help you feel better. Id imagine if you find it bothersome you have spine curvature issues or a disc problem like me because I cannot tolerate lumbar support, I need it to actually curl in to adjust for my funky shaped back. I could be wrong, maybe you have a properly shaped/healthy back and it really is in a bad spot for you.
