Being a mildly disgruntled 2-time former BMW owner, one of the things that drew me to BMWs in the first place was that for a long time their optional sport seats included extendable thigh bolsters. They’re a great feature!
I left my though bolsters somewhat extended all the time, and on long trips, extending them out all the way made for excellent relaxation and comfort.
But now, the new 🐷-nosed, Hofmeister kink-free M4 has arrived, and its optional carbon fiber seats have a carbon fiber-topped wart in the middle of the bottom cushion. Presumably this is to provide specific channels in which to set each of your legs, but I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone in their right mind would spring for these optional seats on a street-driven car. Which, ultimately, the vast majority of these super complex, heavy, expensive cars will be.
I’m sure 68% of all new M4s delivered to dealers will of course be equipped with these carbon fiber nut impalers, which undoubtedly add a couple grand worth of profit margin to the car.
