I own two 1ers. My sport packaged 135 and my activeE. The E has the standard seats and the vert has sports seats.
Commuting in the E really highlights the fact that the standard seats are not comfortable. It's a mistake to not have them. I've taken 10 hour road trips in my sport seats and felt fantastic after while in my hour commute in the E I find myself shifting in the seat...I'm just unable to get comfortable in it
