I’ve tried it all. Lumbar support, bolstered padding, NYC taxi beads, driving with a morphine drip... but nothing makes the seat in my 2008 CRV any more comfortable.

What if I paid some actual money, though? What’s the likelihood I could take the car to an auto upholsterer and say, “Make this seat feel like an S-Class?” I’d actually take an Acura TL. And this guy cuts foam and makes a cover based on the TL pattern, but on the CRV seat frame.

I’d pay money for that, considering I’m probably going to have to drive this loathsome beast for another 15 years.

I’ve looked into adapting seats from another car into the CRV but it’s a no-go.
