X-Type driver's seat causes backache

Four days ago I got my first Jaguar a 2004 X-Type 2.5 SE Auto. The car was
registered in January 2004, and (with only one owner) has done 41,000 miles
in just 18 months. I bought it (from HA Fox in Southampton) at a very
attractive price. It appears immaculate and all services have been carried
out by a Jaguar main dealer, on the dot. BUT, within a few miles, I get low
backache from sitting in the driver's seat. It feels lumpy and unsupportive,
which has completely ruined the anticipated pleasure of owning my first
Jaguar.

Has anyone else had similar experiences, and any advice?

Re: X-Type driver's seat causes backache

I presume you've tried playing with the lumbar support? I usually get
terrible back trouble in most car seats, but got v. comfortable in this
after a bit of fiddling.

My 2002 has an adjustable lumbar support. Does the '04 still have this and
if so have you tried it?
