Sciatica pain, how to adjust the seats?

I've owned two e92 335s before my new m3 - both with the sport package, but for some reason I keep getting nasty sciatica pain with my m3 seats. I've suffered from sciatica for years, and I know the seat base is the same between the 335 and m3 - so it has to be the seat adjustment. Problem is I don't know where to start to "properly" adjust the seats.

Does anyone have any good pointers to reduce pressure on my upper thighs - it feels like the bottom side bolsters are the problem. I'm 5' 8" 195lbs, and need the seat fairly upright to reach the wheel even fully extended. No pain in my back - all in the sciatic nerve area in hamstring area.

Thanks in advance.
