    While reading Motor Trend that the US Spec GTR has wider seat cushions than the global one.

    I think Japan is implying that Americans are all fat asses.

    Americans generally are fatter...I don't see any issue with that :ugh: Well, except that I'm skinny so wider seats don't really help me.

    :dunno: Defeats the purpose of a bolster, if it so wide it isn't bolstering you

    Because Americans have always complained about the "small seats."

    the stereotype is sadly true amongst adults, but it's not like we're a land of only lard asses.

    Many manufacturers do this. It is a common practice.

    I think it is a good idea not to have the same seats for Americans v. little Jap people. We're hardly the same size. Fat has nothing to do with it.

    I doubt a lot of morbidly obese people buy a GTR.

    That's what the bolster adjustment knob is for.

    The 3-series has power adjustable side bolsters with the sport package(it isn't the active adjustment like the M5/6). Although I agree a lot of deusblahblahblah's comments are pretty pointless.

    I concur, but that's an understatement.
