Default 2018 lumbar support

Am I losing my mind? Does anyone have lumbar support on their 2018 STI or WRX limited? It says that lumbar support comes on the limited trim for the drivers seat. Even in the instruction manual. But I can't find the button anywhere

Press release mentions it as a WRX limited feature.

"WRX Limited models feature 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment."

There's a store called "the lumbar yard" that installs that.

Gotcha! I'm on my way. Hopefully they can make me a wooden button.

Thanks for the answers. My mind is at ease.

If ur car has the recaros then you donít have lumbar. Does anyone know if there is a way to adjust lumbar on the recaros manually?

STI limited here....no lumbar support button, but the built-in lumbar is pretty good IMO.
