head rests

Where may I find a custom head rest for a countryman?

Just did a 24 hour trip and the drivers side head rest kind of pushes the head forward a bit, causing neck pain etc....

I noticed that the passenger side rest is different and doesn't do that.

Anybody encounter this and find a fix?

I guess another approach could be lumbar supports, cushions maybe?

But a nice custom head rest would be my first option...

Other than that, the car was awesome on the trip....

I feel that with my lumbar in... When its all the way out I think the seats are very comfortable... I would say if you know of a good aftermarket shop in your area they can fabricate something up for you! I don't know of any aftermarket headrests specifically for for the countryman on sale... But it wouldn't surprise me if they were somewhere out there!

I'll do some looking around and see what I can find,

I'm pretty sure my driver/passenger head rests are identical. Is your driver's side in backwards?

Or short term, exchange the head rests from one side to the other until you can locate custom pieces. Just a thought.

I find its ok driving around here but 12 hours each way and the head rest was a problem... May try some lumbar pillow things for trips... Of course the racing seats looked cool and you can choose the padding etc.....
