    Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    Fellas -

    Looking to spec my Black / Black C2S. And while I have a handle on most of the options available, I must admit I'm utterly confused by seat optionality. Let me try to paraphrase my understanding - you guys tell me if I'm right.

    My understanding is that there are currently four variants of seats:

    (1) The standard seats (option AN) - cost $0
    (2) The standard seats with Leather (option AR) - cost $1,520
    (2) The Adaptive Sports Seats (option P01) - cost $3,055
    (4) The Adaptive Sports Seats with Leather (option P01L) - cost $2,695

    For options (1) and (2), I understand that you can get a Power Seat package, but not for options (3) and (4). Why? Do the ASS' already have the Power Seat package built in?

    Similarly, for options (1) and (2), I understand that you can get a Supple Leather Front and Rear, but that it "conflicts" with options (3) and (4). Why?

    What about the Heated Front seat option? Can you specify that for all four options, or again, like the the Power Seat package, is it included if you buy the Adaptive Sports Seats?

    Finally, why are the Adaptive Sports Seats with Leather ($2,695) LESS COSTLY than the basic Adaptive Sports Seats ($3,055)?? Is the Leather option an ADDED cost?

    Somebody please help!!

    Thx in advance.

    This info is from Porsche Technical Introduction (PNA 489 421 05)

    Std seats have manual back and forth, manual height adjustment, electric backrest, no seat recline, no lumbar, no side cusion

    Fully elecrtic seats have electric back and forth, electric height, electric backrest, electric seat recline, electric lumbar, no side cushion

    Sport seats have manual back and forth, manual height adj, electric backrest, no seat recline, no lumbar, no side cushion

    Adaptive sport seats have electric back and forth, electric height, electric backrest, electricseat recline, electric lumbar, electric side cushion.

    heated seats are just an electric insert to the seat and I *believe* the seat back also.

    I'm not sure about the other questions you raise.

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    Adaptive seats are full leather thus + costly when not ordering full leather interior.

    When ordering full leather interior, adaptive seats have a lesser cost.

    What you have to consider first is your interior leather, either partial or full. Then go with the seats.

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    Frissen is correct. The statement "with leather" relates to whether or not you've ordered a "full leather interior" package. If you are already paying a premium for full-leather interior, the adaptive sport seat option costs less (because the extra leather used on the seats is already built into the cost of the "full leather interior" option). But if you are going with a standard interior, you have to pay a bit more for the adaptive sport seats. To my knowledge, the ASS option carries the power seats and the MEMORY seat option with it.

    Here's what I have on order, for example:

    MB - Special Leather Terracotta (this is an all-leather package) - $3735.00

    P01L - Adaptive Sport Seats (with all leather interior) $2695.00

    342 - Heated Front Seats

    I believe that you can get heated seats with any seating option. Also, realize that if I had NOT opted for a full-leather interior package, that I would by default have to order the P01 ASS package at the slightly higher price in order to get the ASS seats. Simple, right??? :lol:

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    Does anyone have an idea if the regular sport seats have the backs of the seats painted in the aluminum finish or are they just leather color?

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    i got the sport seats in my car not the adaptive ones.

    I like the looks they look extremely confort BUT i dont seem to find the correct seating position and every time i stay in the car for more that 1 hour my back is killing me any help?

    Re: problem

    It's your body. How could we possibly help you with that? This post is like asking somebody over the internet to help you pick out a comfortable pair of shoes. Play with the adjustments until they feel right.

    Re: problem

    HAHA this was really funny, okey maybe i did not phrase my sentence well excuse me .

    I feel that the sport seats are unconfortable without the adaptive settings to adjust the side of the seat my back cannot "sit" in the seat

    Re: problem

    I've never sat in the "non-adaptive" sport seat. I'm getting the adaptive. I also thought that the stock/base seats were pretty good. I hope you can find a way to get comfortable in your seats, or I'm afraid that you simply ordered the wrong seating option without having first evaluated them.

    Re: problem

    well actually i did evaluate them, but to be honest, i did not sat in the dealership "pretending" to drive the car for over an hour to check if the seat is confortable after that period ...

    Re: problem

    I have tried both sports seats and could not get my shoulders comfortable - felt as if my neck was being pushed forward. For that reason I'm going with the standard seats.

    Dilinger - you should try resetting your seat. Set the seat base so your foot is on the footrest and your left leg is slightly bent. Set the seat base height so you can see the tops of the fenders. Then set the seat back in an almost upright position. Then adjust the steering wheel. the upright seat back feels odd to begin with but look at how the drivers in DTM sit and how much closer to upright they are than you might expect. If that doesn't work you may need to talk to your dealer about switching out seats...

    Re: problem

    yes lechef that exactly my feeling that my upper back and neck are beeing pushed forward. Of course all my passengers told me that the seats are extremely confortable so it might be the case that i m a little anxious to adpt in the car that i m pushing forward my head to see better. I m not so big so i thought the sport seats would be great because i ve heard that they are not a plus for really big guys

    I have the standard seats with the full leather option. After 7 hours in the car, my lower back starts to hurt. I guess if I would have ordered the heated seats option, maybe I could have gone to 8 hours? But, 7 hours in a car is lots of fun driving.

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    mu xa xa xa!!!

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    Dilinger, what do the backs of your seats look like...Painted aluminum or leather color?? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Educate Me On Seats, Would Ya

    ITS PAINTED ALUMINIUM more close so seal grey but you can order them to mach exactly exterior color , they look pretty nice
