Default lumbar support in sport seats

I hate the lumbar support on my m3 sport seats. It pushes into my back too much. Others having this problem? I know that the euro adjustable lumbar support is not too difficult to retro fit into this seat but will it help? I want to make my seat back almost flat then use the euro adjustable lumbar support to give a little support on my lower back. How do others feel about this seat?

Tom, did you ever retrofit the lumbar support?

If I had some lumbar support in these seats, it would help a lot. I was in a car accident years ago and have bad lower back problems even after rehab.

Default Re: lumbar support in sport seats

if that is possible, I would also do that. I have the electric sports seats but based on my VIN there is no lumbar support in realoem for this 02/98 built year.
It was only option 488 for non-sport seats.
