    Looks very nice..!
    I wish Playseat would address the lack of lumbar support though. They can get seriously uncomfortable with extended use. An ergonomic redesign is long overdue.

    Yep.

    I've managed to get around it by strapping an alcantara lumbar log in around the velcro back panel. Works great & looks like it's actually part of the seat, but for the price of the Playseat you shouldn't really have to resort to DIY measures.

    I bought a small rectangular cushion to do the same thing for my Forza Playseat but in the end sold the chair and fitted a Recaro instead for far greater comfort and no more Betty Swollocks from the fake leather vinyl.

    Good to see this pCARS one is alcantara, but it really wouldn't take much for Playseat to pad the lower back area a bit. It's incredibly short-sighted of them to stick with the original profile.

    All of the playseats on the market look great, this looks to be a great addition. Unfortunately I do not have the privilege of having space for using or storing one of these. The one posted above looks to be more comfortable than the playeseat evolution, then again, looks can be deceiving.

    Lumbar supports on racing seats are normally removable.. so you can add any velcro attached support. I use a sparco one (they are normally cheap, depending if it's a fixed one or a inflatable one), they exists of every form and size.

    Backup: Intel i7 950 @3.6Ghz on ASUS Rampage II, 2 x GTX 780, 12GB RAM CORSAIR 1600, 2TB WD, SB X-FI MB, Corsair TX850W, Dell 3008WFP 30" 2560x1600 - OS: W7 Ultimate x64

    Yeah, see my follow-up post above - I used a small cushion to get a similar effect. The basic comfort and support offered by Playseats could easily be improved though. I don't think the chair design has evolved much (if at all) since the product launched. Some rivals have far more ergonomic solutions as their basic overall design.
