Anyone else find Mk7 Seats uncomfortable?

I have found that as I have continued my weight reduction project, the seats have become more hospitable.

Fwiw as a data point, I had these in (went 15mm I think) for a week or two and ended up taking them out. Started getting weird numbness on longer drives that disappeared after. 6’ / 180lbs I guess the stock seats ended up being fine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It’s funny how the little tweak in seat angle in either direction can make such a big difference, but it definitely does

Same. I took the spacers out long ago. I don't mind the seats now..

I had to raise the back of the seat with the McMaster bolts and washers and now my back is much better. It makes the seat more flat.

I was not a big fan of the factory R seats 6' and 170lbs. These fit me much better, just gotta do the wiring to get everything working again.
