but give me a good carbon bucket seat any day. love the carbon buckets in my 458 compared to the electric/heated sofa comfort seats.

I helped a buddy part out a CTS-V recently and man those seats were HEAVY. Like 80 pounds a piece.
I don't think seat "technology" has really changed.

The least comfortable factory seats I've ever owned are the ones in my 2017 BMW. That said, they weight half as much as the seats in my M5. The most comfortable seats I have on track or back road are the bucket seats in my M3, but they're the least comfortable seats I have on a 5+ hour drive.

Seats are and exercise in compromise and how wide a size group of people they're attempting to address.
