I don't know about you guys, but my only area of disappointment in the core trim is the lack of better bolstered seats for more aggressive back road driving, tracking, etc. IMO the more aggressive seats should have been an available option, maybe a part of the performance pack and bump up the price of it to 2-2.5K?

On that note, if any of you eventual CE owners purchase aftermarket seats I call dibs on your old ones lol.

It’s the same seat design it’s just different material apparently so why are you saying it’s less bolstered?
Oh really? In Everyday Driver's video they complained about sliding in the core seats and them not being bolstered enough. I hope they're the same!

People are different sizes. Therefore, everyone will feel different in them. Possibly the cloth material is a bit less grippy too.

Regardless, I'll probably get some Brides.
That's a good point, I assumed that since they stopped complaining about that when they swapped cars the seat design was different. But different material makes sense!

I'd be surprised if they weren't more bolstered, cause I agree there was a change in opinion in regard to the seats when they switched. I may have to rewatch it, but I'm pretty sure Everyday Driver even said the Core seats aren't good track seats but the CE seats are. I can only assume that was due to the material and bolsters, I don't see the material making that massive of a difference

There are tons of false informations in all the reviews. They said the seats of the Circuit Edition are better than the Core, but they were sitting in a Morizo, which has different seats for sure (headrest is not ajustable on Morizo)...

ED also thought the engines were making something like 40lbs of boost which is not true unless all the online articles I've read are wrong.

This part. This is a non-issue (but I get it is an issue for others)... for me, the aftermarket has my back. Bride, Recaro, and Status all have something I'm willing to replace the driver's seat with.
