Unhappy 2013 M5 Front Seat Rubbing

My '13 M5 front passenger seat is rubbing against the center console box and driving me nuts. Every bump on the road produces a squeak. Is there an adjustment to move the front seat side away from the center console? Is there any play in the mounting bolts to slide the seat toward the door? Should I explore if the seat bolster has needs to be adjusted and tightened toward the center of the seat? Thanks in advance for your help.

I was going to say, try to close up the side bolsters see if it helps. I have never experienced this.

Midnight, Iím having the exact same issue. Havenít dug in to see if the seat can move over a bit. Let me know if you discover anything.

Itís not the side bolsters. It seems that either the seat is too close to the console, or it tilts towards the center. If you raise the seat itís less of an issue.
