2011 BMW 528i: The Best Seats in the Business?

October 12, 2010


Yeah, they probably are.

I haven't sat in every car made (photographers are usually tased if they get too close to the really nice cars), but I've sat in enough to know these seats are damn good.

Without much adjustment, I was immediately comfortable. And with a little more adjustment, I was set. The key to these seats, besides the fact they match my proportions pretty well, is the adjustability of the upper back portion. It tilts forward and backward independent from the rest of the seat back. It doesn't seem like it would do much, but it gave me such a natural and relaxed posture I could hardly believe I put over 400 miles on the car this weekend.
