seat upgrade

My 07 model S car seats are killing my back. What's a good seat to get?

I had the same issue. I put in some SVT seats which have lumbar adjustment and no more back pain. Also, try adjusting the height of your seat with the little crank underneath. Try sitting a hair higher. It's amazing what a difference it makes on long trips.

If you can find a set of seats from a 01-03 Street Edition or S2 car those seats are super nice. They have the lumbar and extra padding on the sides.

This would be your best bet. I had the same thing in my 06 S they are just cheap and they suck! I guess you get what you pay for!

You can add lumbar pads to your existing seats too, if that's all the problem is. Google should pull it up. They usually have a hand pump bulb that hangs off to the inside of seat near console.
