    Seems an odd choice not to include the lumbar setting in the user profile.

    Anybody else noticed this?

    Yes, I asked about this and it's a known issue. The explanation I was given was that the lumbar setting hardware either doesn't allow it or can't be properly integrated into the seat memory system. Fairly annoying as my wife and I have VERY different lumbar support positions, but it's pretty quick to change the settings manually.

    Pretty sure the lumbar setting wasn't retained in the user profile of my past two cars either...

    I agree, this parameter has never been stored in any of my cars including Range Rovers, Mercedes CL etc.

    I always assumed that it doesn't have the required level of precision when inflatable airbags are used etc.
