Yes I have a problem with ' baggy ' front drivers seat ....and would think that the passenger seat ( which has hardly been sat on ) is showing same problem
Only done 800 miles but seat looks like it has been sat in for 80,000 !

I have reported it to the dealer and await an answer.
The car has to go in and have the 3 cracked handles replaced when they have been sprayed.

my dealer told me it's part of how this material behaves and will not do anything about it.
let's see what other dealers say

The local dealer has replaced the leather seat cover, (Jaguar were very quick to send the replacement part). I've driven about 20 miles in it so far and still looking OK...... picture attached.

For any other dealer to say wrinkles in the seat on delivery is acceptable I think should move down market to cars of average price.

I'll let you know how the seat wears from now

I think my seat had also started to show signs of this stretching / wrinkling. Also my passenger seat has some really terrible double stitching which looks like the person operating the sewing machine was drunk at the time.

I have the standard leather seats that come with an SE. As compared to the seats in my previous car, a BMW X5 40e M Sport, they are superb. Far more comfortable on long journeys, more supportive, definitely not too firm, not at all baggy and have all the adjustment I need.

My vehicle in for service no with a long list of needs. My oyster leather Performance Seat on the drivers side looked exactly like the photo posted on this thread. Jaguar told the dealer to order new leather seat cover

The dealer tried this, (Finessing?), on my seat but it didn't work. They then replaced the bottom part of the seat cover with a new one from Jaguar...... I'm not convinced this will last though...... seems to be the internal padding that is insufficient. All the other seats are fine
