In Reply to: my thoughts on the "butt clamp" ... posted by KC ///M3 on April 24, 2000 at 22:14:52:

: Well, let's see what sort of attention that garners : )

: Actually, what I meant by "keeping your butt in place" was keeping your body as a whole in place. I'm in the military, and "your butt" is a generic term of varied and frequent usage (as in "get your butt over here" and "this anthrax shot will save your butt someday"). Sorry if you took that too literally!

: I personally have not felt that the thigh bolsters become uncomfortable. In fact, I like the snug fitment of the seats. My problem is that I'm about 6'3" and I find that after long excursions, my lower back tends to ache a little. I have problems finding comfortable driving positions though, so more normally sized people should be better off.

: Bob says he finds the vaders to be very comfortable, and he most likely has more experience with the seats than I do since he has been driving M3's since dinosaurs roamed the Earth (jk Bob). I really don't have much experience with the sedan seats, I just imagine that BMW would design them to be a little more comfort-oriented than the vaders because of the ever-so-slightly more domestic and practical nature of the sedan.

: I honestly think that as long as you are not a genetic freak of nature like me, you won't have any problem with the coupe seats.

: Ken
