If I'm not mistaken your accidentally hitting the M button for the memory seating. I know I did it a few times when I had a Turbo X for a day.

Mystery solved

Cheers

This is the Swedish equivalent of butt dialing your cell phone. The bolsters on the sport seats hang over the side and your butt pushes the outboard one into the seat buttons, resetting the memory and losing your settings. I got fed up with this and made a little wooden cover out of a paint stirrer stick which I sprayed flat black and velcro'd over the buttons. No problem since.

I am also starting to get tired of this problem. Can you please take a picture and show us how it looks now? Thank you!

Pictures attached: 1) paint stick and painted piece (velcro patches on back); 2) memory buttons for seat w/ velcro patches; 3) Memory buttons covered by painted piece. Viola! No more butt dialing.
