Default Lumbar support

Does anyone have a problem w/ the lumbar support deflating. Seems like everytime I get in the car it's flat. Is it leaking or is this normal??

that's one option I will not be ordering. Can you give me a reason why I would need it. I'm 27 and in reasonably good health. Occasional back problems but not more than any other human. We were not ready to stand on two's IMO.

They are the most comfortable chairs I've sat in. My first M3 had 'em and my present one does not. Big comfort difference - small price difference.

I do. I love the lumbar support. You know of all the problems "associated" witht this vehicle, I don't seem to have any with mine. I don't know if the majority of them are messed up or it's just a few. But then again, I'm sure not every M3 owner posts here. Otherwise will there be more complaints? Just curious.

The lumbar is nice, but it really should come with the car.

Mine tends to leak down over a couple of weeks.

I'm a bodybuilder, and my back is perfectly healthy and strong, but I wish I had ordered Lumbar Support. The regular power seats are uncomfortable and I feel like I'm sliding forward all the time.
