Unhappy Drivers seat

I have a 2006 CTS-V that is a fun car to drive and has 4000 miles in only 2 months however I can not get comfortable in the power seat.
Anyone having this problem and a possable fix.
Love the car but not the seat

Honestly without the lumbar in my seat inflated (at least partially) and the head rest in the forward tilted position I can't get comfortable in the seat either. I have a back injury though so I'm a bit hard to please when it comes to seat comfort. What about the V's seat do you not find comfortable?

Install a wide band oxygen sensor in place of a stock sensor:

Seat

It is a v and my leg goes numb. I am trying raising the seat today and see if that is better.

I have a friend whose legs go numb in just about every seat that is not a bench. Turns out if her butt is below her knees her legs go numb.

The V's seats have an adjustment that can raise the rear porton of the seat (where it meets the seat back). I would suggest trying to raise that section of the seat and see if that is any more comfortable for you.

Seat

Thanks
That is what I am working on now. Have tried all configurations but usually by now my body gets used to a seat but not the Caddys as it is proving to be tough. I will keep trying as the car is fun to drive.
Have a Corsa exhaust and K N filter. Will play with computer next week.
Thanks for your help
