Repacement Drivers seat?

Repacement Drivers seat?
Hi,I have recently bought a used 2008 w221 as a daily runner after selling my 12 year old 150k BMW X5 (wished I kept it now std seats were Fab),Well my problem also happened 20years ago on an s class sel the seat and my back didnt go togeather so back then bought a Recaro seat and all was Fine.I am told by Recaro they no longer do one for the w221 any ideas?.My seats have only ,lumber, seat goes up/down,forward,base also slides out and back and recline so guess standard seating(no memory either).Its not supportive on the sides both base and backthere not in back nick but lack good support for me anyway ,its done 55k ,can i add anything to bolster up both sides and base is there a harder foam seat/back you can get in the UK/EUROPE and are they difficult to change by a trimmer?.also drivers side lumber wont remember the setting but the passenger side does
Thanks Guys

Take the seat to a good upholsterer and have it padded to suite your driving position/weight etc.
