6ft 220 - I love them too .. . one of the 50 reasons to go full "M" ... my pickup day before Xmas presented a 6hr drive back home.... normally after such a long stint behind the wheel, when I finally arrive home I am done in, my legs like concrete, this time after being in the M seats for 6 hrs , arrived home as fresh as at the start of the journey ... amazing seats , amazing drivers car , 100% pure indulgent perfection.

Just one thing to note .. perhaps my driving position .. seat down at it lowest , quite far back , and back of seat raked somewhat .. I realised the bottom 1/4 of the Hud was invisible .. lift myself up at bit and ahhh "there you are" .. twas never a problem in my 440i . is there any adjustment to the positioning of the hud on the windshield ? i.e. up a bit

Do they have a decent amount of adjustment?
Hey im 6'4" 340lbs and believe me they are really comfortable

You can definitely adjust the HUD upwards, I always have to do the same. Somewhere in vehicle settings and "internal displays".

This is so interesting to read how well they fit the big guys… I'm 5'4" 155, stocky build, and they are the most comfortable seats I've ever had. Mind you I tend to fit perfectly in BMWs and their seats in general but these take the cake

Legend Spooky36 .. many thanks for the "heads up" ... yes under display settings > Hud .. the "Height" option does the trick of moving the projected position up or down the windshield
