Who has sport seats without lumbar?

I am trying to figure out the comfort level of a sport seats without lumbar support. In this case no premium package. How are the seats? Anyone have this set up? Thanks in advance.

I have manual, leatherette sport seats and I find them very comfortable. Finding a really good driving position is a little tricky, but after you're settled, they're better than the E90 seats (sans the M3) and the F10 seats.

Does your lower back feel well supported?

Very well supported. In fact, I think BMW put a little bit too much padding on the lower area of the seat relative to the rest. I think after a few thousand miles, it'll break in nicely.

That is great news to hear. I got a little concerned. By the way I got leatherette as well but auto trans!

I also have sports seats, leatherette, no auto lumbar. Seats are great, plenty of back support.

My e92 didnt have adjustable lumbar support. Thats pretty cheap of BMW if you ask me. My car had virtually everything except nav.....and lumbar. My seat caved in a bit over 60,000 miles but was pretty good.

FWIW, the sport seats in my E46 w/ Performance Package are very comfortable.

The sport seats are great, adjustable or non-adjustable, it's just the non-sport seats make my back ache when I get the loaners because of the lack of lumbar.
