Ugh. I know all that I need to know which is that I hate the seats in this car. Love the seats in my F86. I guess I'll be shopping the Cayenne Turbo and GLE 63 coupe when my F86 lease is up in 2.5 years.

You never drove it so I don't know how you can hate the seats :

I like the way it looks comfort is something I can't judge by the picture.

This will be by far better SAV then the F86 in any category.

I think they're the same as the M5 just with some different patterns/design.

Seats are my only concern, they are too narrow in the shoulders area.

Yes, I owned F86 and F90 and IMO M5 has much better seats.

Those are adjustable.
I am 6ft 1" and very wide in shoulders and on mine F90 M5 was just fine.

You wouldn't have any issues whatsoever.

I was just saying as you said he couldn't know as he hasn't sat in the vehicle but he may have sat in an M5 before. Seat comfort is all subjective in the end.

The upper part adjustable as well? I didn't know that.

Those are great news, you just made my day 😀

Btw, I'm 6'7, so still slightly concerned 😀
Once I quickly tried the M5, and this really bothered me. But I didn't even try to adjust it

It has the same seats as the M5 and the x3m/x4m has similar version of the seats. I was contemplating an M5 comp and the seats turned me off (I am now waiting to see the m8 comp seats, but the seats in the launch m8 convertible have given me hope that I'll like the m8). Visually, I can tell that the x5m/x6m have the M5's seats. I was hoping the x5m/x6m would have individualized seats like the F85/F86.....

Interesting that you have this impression. Mine is the opposite as I took the F86 over a F90 comp. I hate the protruding headrest on the F90 seats.

I'm a wide guy too. You might like the m8 seats better.....

Seats on M8 competition are very similar to the F90
I almost took it home a month ago

Beautiful interior, but why did they not match the steering wheel to the leather!

Appears the brake setting technology from the M8 carried over to the G85/G86, as within the M Mode settings brake can either be comfort or sport.
