    I think the biggest issue with the Pajero seats, and something that can't be fixed, is the under-thigh/ knee support.
    Other than an adjustable front edge I don't think they're that bad.

    The other thing - and this is probably very subjective - is how warm and sweaty it gets with the leather seats.
    I can well understand your issue with support under the knees.
    I'm not familiar with the Pajero seat mountings but for Challenger there's a 100% improvement in comfort by fitting spacers under the front seat mounts.

    I concur with your sentiments about leather seats. Wouldn't have them if you paid me (in my part of the world anyway).

      I do not think I am getting a bonus console cover with mine.

      I don't think much of the quality of the OEM trim in my car,

      the console cover is starting to show signs of wear & I was actually thinking about buying one of those wet suit material console covers that I have seen advertised.

      Anyone bought one of those?

      BTW I ordered my covers last night & at 9.30 this morning the shipping tracking had them on the way.

        Interesting. How thick are the spacers you used and material? 20mm or so aluminium?
        I don't think that'll solve the issue here though - the seat cushion is just too short. The factory electric seats have adjustments to lift the front of the seat, but that doesn't help.
        I miss the seats in my 2007 BMW 320 that had the adjustable front edge to fit the underside of your knees. (And also much better side support, but it was an M-sport model)

          Lifting the front of the seat by 25-30mm has been the accepted approach. Mild steel, drilled and tapped. Round bar, hex, whatever is on hand. OJ has used hex connectors for threaded rod.

          If you already have a tilting seat base then the above may not help you, even though I find it forces the body to sit 'IN' the seat rather than perched 'ON' it.

              Evening all,

              We are planning an 8-9 week trip from mid next year. The minister for Warfare and Finance has complained that both our 2000 N M and now our NX front seats are uncomfortable for long drives and touring. Has anyone replaced the front seats with relatively inexpensive aftermarket seats, used inflatable lumbar support seat covers or have any other great ideas that will save my ears from bleeding for the duration of the trip?
              Problem with seat replacement with non OEM is they must be certified for your car. That makes them relatively expensive.

              Like others I'm amazed at how much comfort improvement comes from quality (mine are Prestige 30mm nap) sheepskin seat covers.

              Mines an Exceed (leather) and found them comfortable over a recent 4 x 600km+ days in a row trip. Not something I can say for my Commodore seats (despite sheepskin covers as well).

                those covers look so good I bought a set & I didn't even know I was in the market. lol.
                So did I and they arrived today. Excellent service and ultra fast postage from the seller. They are really good looking covers too.

                  I'll experiment more, also struggling with a fooked back so can't sit to "deep" either otherwise I'm not getting out of the car

                    Yes, mine arrived yesterday

                    I think the instructions could be a bit better written with perhaps some pictures but got them on okay.

                      I agree about the insructions and having started to fit the driver's side, it's a real challenge when you have electric seats. But they do look and feel great.

                        I am not keen on the way the strap under the bottom cushion went & had to read a couple of times to get
                        how you have to unclip & remove the bit of trim on the back of the seat. (It's a tight fit through there.) lol

                        Would be easier if you had done them before though but must say they look good & fit well.
