Driver seat misalignment

Hey guys,
 
Just joined today and looking forward to having a family that will listen to me talk car all day.
 
I recently upgraded my cayman for a 991 last month. I quickly arranged a trip to North coast of Scotland (family) to try her out. Surprisingly it was very dissapointing, for almost the whole journey the right side of driver seat was digging into my back. I'm not huge, 180cm and 95kg.
 
Having had a cayman with the same seat I think this really surprised me.
 
After I got home I measured from the seat bolster to steering wheel where I found that the left side is 30mm closer to the steering wheel!
 
Any advise what this could be?
 
Thanks 😊

Welcome to the Club!
Which seat does your 991 have? There are a number of versions, but what you describe doesn't sound quite right, the seat being off centre is wrong. Does it have electric or manual adjustment?

It's just the standard manual front to rear with electric back, I think this is called 4-way?
 
I suspect that the seat back has been unintentionally moved but was hoping this issue has been seen before.
 
The car is still under warranty from non porsche dealer down south, Alexanders Prestige, they are coming to pick the car up mid Sept for a few other things I've spotted after buying.
 
If I can find the issue before it goes then they can order any parts and therefore less time away from its new home😉

Just a wee update, visited porsche Edinburgh today and they have no previous history of this. Car booked in for investigation later this month. Alexander Prestige will cover the cost 😉

Cat been with Porsche Edinburgh for 2 days and they can't find anything yet. They want the car back to remove seat and strip down for a better look.
Makes me wonder what they did for the first two days?
