    Hi all,

    I'm happy that my G31 5 series tourer came with comfort seats, as I have a bad back, so I appreciate the memory and adjustments I can make. The manual says I can adjust flaps on the headrest, but I am unsure if I need to manually pull these out, and am worried about forcing anything. Does anyone know how to adjust the headrest flaps on a G31 5 Series?

    I added the screenshot of the manual as an attachment, and hope it’s viewable.

    They are manual. Just gently pull the edges forward

    Thanks very much; I’ll try and feedback.

    I would have never specified these seats before now owning. As I said, I can’t do without them now, given my back condition. The funny thing is, they are the most comfortable seats I own, including the ones in the house. I’m sure my wife on occasions wishes I moved out into the car; so just as well.

    Many thanks again!!

    Here is a picture of the headrest flap pulled out. I was surprised how little mention there is of this on the web. Hopefully someone in the BMW family with a similar question will find this post. IMG_1434.jpg

    Also same on the F10/11's - once you've had these seats you won't accept anything else!
