I spec'd mine without power seats. Had manual seats in my ///M3 and they were great. Didn't think it was necessary to pay the premium for motors and electronics that I'd seldom use and could fail down the road. That, and I bought the car for the driving experience, not for the luxury factor. That said, it takes me forever to get my seating position right again after someone screws it up.
