Sport Seats Alternative...?

I just bought a 2003 S and have what I believe to be the sport seats. I find the bolsters pinch me in my upper rib area (I'm big at 6' 240 lbs). My question is, did they make a non-sport version of the seats that is wider in that area?
Thanks for any input.

sport vs base

yes, the non-sport (base) seats only have the lower portion of the bolster. the sport seats' bolster continues up higher. looking to trade?


here's an example of the regular seats.


and a not great picture of the sport seats

This is the sport seat, the standard is below. The standard seats will give you more shoulder room. Put out the word and I'm sure you can find somebody in your area that would be happy to trade.

If you are really looking to downgrade from sports seats you could probably make a little extra cash off doing so... go over to rennlist and place a classfied add... people are always looking for good condition sport seats. Don't ever go to the track though, you will miss them...
