The M seat is very nice but an extra £400 option over the inclusive price of the standard seat when you buy a new bike is well out of order. Bit like the £200 for the M battery really  :305:

how about a side view of the seat to get an idea of the dish effect

I suspect a side view won't help much with that as with no weight on the seat the cover holds itself flat well above the support foam of the dish.  The dish only becomes apparent when you put weight on the seat.

what I want to see if there is a smidge more room to move back and forth and if the "saddles" are as pronounced as the stock seat

This is the closet image I have currently to a side profile. I dont think its any different to the stock seat in profile /shape. Ie it still shaped like an old tractor seat pan.
