I have purchased a used 2015 Model S (Manufactured Nov 2015) with so called next generation seats (3rd generation I believe?). This is the designer’s made seats right before Tesla started manufacturing them in house.
Long story short and despite all the different ideas, the seat is not comfortable at all for me. I have been in a couple of 2018 loaner model Ss that has the premium seats and they were just perfect! I reached out to Tesla to see if mine could be upgraded and they said no (not sure why) Have also been looking into seat covers to see if I can modify the shape a bit with a seat cover but not sure if that’s the right solution.
Any idea what I can do? I have been trying different seat positions with no luck and definitely feel upper and/or lower back pain after driving for 30 minutes. The other seats in the 2018 loaner cars do not give me any back pain even after hours driving...
