I have the pleasure of dealing with chronic neck and back issues from an accident and the Black Edition seats really aggravate things. I've looked around and found some info around modifying the factory seats to be more comfortable, but don't want to go that route.

Anyone have anything creative they've done to make these BE seats more comfortable? 30 minutes and I'm ready to get out. If it comes down to it, I might just have to put something else in, but don't want to spend the $. A friend of mine has premium seats. Sat in those and found they were marginally better, but doubt I'd go that direction either.

I thought premium and black edition seats were basically the same from Recaro, guess not.

The black edition Recaros are a lot tighter than the Premiums. I'm a small guy and the BE seats are tight on me, no other car seat has ever been tight on me

I dont like be seats. Swap with someone that has the extended leather. Theyre way much more comfortable

The Premium seats in my 2015 didn't do my lower back any favors and feel that the BE seats are better fitted as I haven't experienced any discomfort in a while. Someone I know mentioned the GT-R seats remind him of the ones in the G35/G37 which gave him back issues. Maybe it's a Nissan thing.

Buy a neck pillow lol. I find my premium seats really comfortable but I’ve seen people install seat covers that have extra cushions. Maybe look into one of those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I will trade you the seats from my Mk7 GTI, they are more comfortable than my GTR seats.

I corresponded with this guy on eBay who sells the Recaro seats and can modify them. I thought his price was too high at $4,800 plus $999 shipping but maybe he can do something for you to make your seats more comfortable?
