I don't know if it's just me, but after 10-15 minutes of driving my lower back starts to cramp up and hurt a bit.

A lot of people compliment the seats in a good way, but I'm not too sure about that.

Highly considered changing the seats out for some Recaro's, but then of course we run into the infamous SRS situation. :woowoo:

Yes to be honest I do agree. I recently had a MRI scan and results showed me I have a ruptured disc (high grade) on my L4-L5. I have to put a pillow on the seat just so I can sit up right. Im 5'11 180lbs. I tryed adjusting the seat as much as I could but nothing works, I cannot drive the car without the pillow.

Don't get the recaros just because f that. I know EXSTLY what you are talking about. I went to "Relax The Back" and for 50 bucks bought a awesome memory foam lumbar supporter. It;s great. No pain even after a 6 hour ride. The thing straps around the back of the seat and locks in. I would go check that out. Mine is grey though because I had it in my integra with the grey seats so if you walk past my car and see it, it looks like a 90 year olds car but if you get the black it will look good and totally help your back out.


They shod have other colors in the store.

By the way, since you mentioned Recaro. Aren't the Civic Si seat are manufactured by Recaro too?

No, don't say that. We still need you for hook up with USDM Mugen parts when we want it.

Everybody is different, some peoples back's are already worse than others due to work, sports, any other activities that could cause more back strain...I've got nothing but compliments on how the seats feel but there not the most comfortable seat out there either

when push comes to shove ill have to let it go, it hurts to just drive to work and back 15 minute drive one way, not much of a choice, plus the suspension is stiff enough to aggravate the back injury i have when i hit a bump

i was going to recommend deadlifts to develop a stronger back to allow you to drive your mugen but seeing as you're injured, i wont
