I agree with mjpowell I believe the standard seats are 10 way adjustable while the Appearance Package multi-contour seats are 14 way adjustable. Have you really tried all the adjustments. I have found the standard leather to be somewhat hard as opposed to the real leather seats (I guess MB would refer to this as premium leather) I have in another one of my vechicles. Maybe that's what your finding uncomfortable.
