2009 nissan gt-r butt bolster

What can you say about the most blogged-about car in the history of the Long Term Blog that hasn't already been said in the previous 166 posts?

Pretty much nuthin.

So I'll just second Al's complaint about the seat cushion's quirk that affects those of us with bony butts.

I will admit that my butt is bony, and the entire time I'm in the driver seat of the GT-R, I squirm and fret over that strange sand bar of seat bolstering jutting out behind me. It's not huge, and I keep thinking that if I can wiggle around just right, it'll stop goosing me. But no dice.

I'd love to hear from other GT-R drivers on this topic. Does the part of the seat bolstering that juts out a bit bug you, too?
