    I just got a demo M3 & the seat elevator is clicking now. I tried to see what is wrong but I have no idea. Are they faulty? Also can the elevator motors overheat?

    I am sure any motor could overheat as its a motor with being put to it. I have never had a issue with seat elevation.

    Also the new F3, F5,M3, M5 have newer lift and from start to finish I think its 10 sec.

    Older version takes 20 sec and they newer version roll faster with full seat elevation!

    Have you demoed a F3 / F5?

    I had a old Permo standing chair back in 90s. But I was never seated properly & I couldn't stand the Front wheel drive. So I exchanged it at a loss for a new Storm Arrow Torque. I never considered a front wheel drive since. But if it provides front stability I might.
