I've tried so many different settings on my seat and couldn't find the spot I wanted. Then, I started raising the seat base higher and higher, and finally, AHA! I'm somewhere a bit higher than midway. I've had it there now for a few days and find that I'm not fiddling with it much.
Give it a shot you may like it.

I don't use lumbar support as it doesn't help my back, and I do have lower back issues. I pump the lumbar up to about halfway, then lower it to it's lowest position, then let all the air out. It seems to give a good position.
I've also noticed that raising the seat has improved comfort. I still haven't found a perfect position (I guess that's why you need the incremental adjustments that power seats offer), but I'm overall happy with the seating position.

I've driven 2,500 miles in a bit over two months and it's a very comfortable cruiser. It's miles better (no pun intended) than the F10 528i I had before.
