Driver's seat sinking

The driver's seat in my (new to me) tourer seems to be sinking. Each day it needs 2-3 pumps to raise it up again.

I assume the gas ram is leaking slightly.

Is this a common issue?

Lay off the pies for a while and it should sort itself

In all seriousness, Unless you have the leather interior, a new seat can be found quite cheaply on Ebay; That said, if it's used from a dealer, you should be able to claim on the warranty?

Eco display
I have exactly the same thing happening on my 9G. Leather heated seats with lumbar.
However, I am quite heavy, 19st+ so not surprised they go down lol

Solution? - Raise the seat up and shove something underneath it.
