BMW 328i driver seat is impossible! Alternatives?

I recently purchased a 2000 BMW 328i. At first I thought the seat wasn't perfect. However; with the power controls and lumbar control I did not forsee any problems. I've been driving it a couple of months and now there is definitely a problem. The seat just doesn't support my back the way I need it to. Even with the lumbar inflated its not enough.

If I could find aftermarket seats to try out and have them installed I'd be willing to do that but I don't know where to look.

Any suggestions?

There are TONS of things you can put on your seat, from therapy beads to added support. You just got to look around a bit.

Here is a really cheap idea that you could do if you need more support. Get a pillow and stuff it between your back and the seat
