Has anyone had their seat foam altered?

there is a big difference in the seating pad and thats why the issues present with gen2 more frequently.
Gen1 is more ergonomic vs gen2 which is like sitting on a bench in the park with rough bolsters + the front part is not long enough.

It’s weird for me. My previous car was a 03 Mercedes. Obviously much more comfortable seats plus they were very well worn in. Also I’m going from a car to a suv so the angle is a bit different on sitting. So far I don’t love the seats, bought it 3 weeks ago, but I hope they break in a little better
I should add that this is my first SUV, and the angle probably has a lot to do with me liking it.

I have a little Nissan pickup, also higher than a sedan, but not as high as CX-5 and it has old worn out manual seats.

Yeah both times I had a loaner gen 2, I thought the seat comfort was horrendous. My gen 1 seat on the other hand is fine.

What is the actual measurement of the seat pad depth (front to back) of both seats? Gen 1 definitely looks like it protrudes more, but maybe the side bolsters are just shorter.
