I liked my 2010 seats better personally. Maybe just cause they were worn in, but I made a comment on my test drive that I wasn't fond of the bolstering in the seat and I was playing with all sorts of adjustments trying to see if I could get more.I actually hope the seats are a bit better at bolstering than the previous gen Sport. Anytime I put my 2010 into the curves aggressively I get thrown all over the seat and feel like I have to hold onto the steering wheel for stability, which isn't safe. I don't remember what the 17s seats were like in my short test drive, but I don't remember feeling the bolsters that I loved in my numerous 1990-99 SHOs. I kinda see what C&D is saying although I hope they are being overly picky. Why can't Ford do the pneumatic side bolsters they did 25 yrs ago? I miss those seats.
