I’ve got a Perf with racing buckets. I love these seats and an the right dimensions to fit them well. However they are certainly firm and I explored some options for those long, long motorway drives where there are no benefits from a snug bucket and you want something ultra comfy.

Based on recommendations I went for the “Gary Hubbard” seat cushion. He’s a top bloke and makes these bespoke cushions to specifically fit the Lambo racing buckets. I thought I’d post on here in case anyone is looking for something similar. He can match to the seats and they fit absolutely precisely and even does the stitching to match laser etching. They are an absolute bargain considering the final result and the workmanship that goes into these.

Here are some pics of mine. I tried it out today and they are wonderful. The net result is a marginally softer seat than the comforts (which I had on my previous Huracan) and you sit about an inch higher; you definitely lose some of the connection with the car you get from buckets but that’s not the point of when they get used!

They do look really good. I had been contemplating getting some from him, but even more sold on the idea now after seeing a real review.

Thank you

Here you go - I found the best way to reach him was by phone.

Have you tried it in the passenger seat?
I have something similar to ease passengers' comfort, but the passenger airbag does not enable when someone is sat on the cushion - as shown on the light in front of the passenger, which isn't ideal so I'm not using it at the moment.

Interesting. I will check that out. FYI the sensor is just under the centre cushion at the base of the seat so the extra padding may not be triggering it. It’s easily moved to a place with more pressure as that cushion can be easily pulled up (it’s attached with a single screw on the base, or pulled out from the vertical part of the seat)

The problem I was having was with the base of my back. I also want to keep my height low in the car and still get that connection. I decided just to buy these cheap ones on ebay and they work well for me so far. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402784196034?var=673026... They actually fit the seat very well.
