B Class add seat adjustability?

Hi all,
Just downgraded from E Class C220CDI to B Class 200CDI Auto but have encountered problem with lack of seat adjustability compared to E class. Both had leather seats (E Class electric adjust but B Class manual adjust) but B class lacks the front seat cushion adjustment. (the bit under the thigh that raises and lowers not the actual seat height).
Does anyone have any suggestions to be able to modify / fix standard seat to add adjustment in this area?
Only one local dealer (useless) who suggests paying 600 pounds for new cradle for driver seat. !!!! This is after dealer said seat came with adjustment in this area but found out after car delivery that only electric seat has this adjustment.
Please note adjustment important as i am partially disabled and need the added thigh support.
