I get a little stiff from driving it for long periods. Nothing too bad though.

Actually these are better than the Ricaro's I had in my subaru. OEM Ricaro's aren't exactly the best but they just weren't that comfy on long trips.

I never did and I took a few long trips with my Camaro 5 to 6 hrs long and I never had any pain from the ride. Maybe its the way you sit in the car and have it set up.

The stock seats are comfortable just check your ergonomics while driving.

No back pain, but my knees do get stiff on long trips driving more than 3 hours or so between pit stops.

It's the ankles that get stiff, oh well beauty doesn't always go hand in hand with practicality.

I run with the seat heater on to alleviate the pain. Not everyone has worked their asses of for 20 years and have no back pain. You won't be 25 forever. Trust me.

My 2010 Camaro doesn't bother me too bad. My 2002 mustang GT killed my back, it had power lumbar my SS doesn't. Seats are much more comfortable in my Camaro.

I do find the seats on my 2014 2SS/RS that appear perforated to be much more comfortable than the smooth finish on the 2012 45th anniv 2SS. Wish there was a power lumbar adjustment.
