Power Seats

I'm somewhat confused as to what the standard will be for the 135i with regards to the seats.

Standard power seats?

What changes to seating occur with the sport package? same with the premium package?

Withthe 335i its seems that standard is 8-2ay power seats, yet with the premium you get downgraded to 4-way power, but with lumbar supports.

Alright, think I figured it out. Standard on the 135i is "adjustable"seats. I had these on my old A4 and it was apain in the ass. Power is the way to go.

Seems power seats are not standard, as with the 335i, but offered as an option.

If you need to drive the car with a helmet, you might not want to get the power seats. They generally adjust lower.

Btw, I was initially confused at the wording on the seats as well.

My question is what seats do you get if you order both the Premium and the Sport package? Can you even order both packages at the same time or do you need to order the Sport package and seperate leather option to have leather with the sport package, but then what about the other Premium options that are not listed as seperate options?

LUmbar support?

The brochures are confusing, aren't they? It seems that with the sport package one can have either sport seats or electric sport seats (probably at premium for the latter). But lumbar support is mentioned only in connection with the power seats in the premium package, which features only leather seats. Does this mean that the vinyl-clad power sports seats in the sport package are not available with lumbar support?

Even the cloth-covered seats in the European 135 have what looks like the button for electric lumbar support. Hmm?

Ok...
Lumbar Support: ONLY IN PREMIUM PACKAGE
Power Seats: In premium package or stand alone option. NOT PART OF SPORT PACKAGE!!

IN ORDER TO HAVE LUMBAR...YOU CANNOT HAVE LEATHERETTE!

So 128er do you think you can get both Premium and Sport packages together to cover leather, lumbar, sport seat, basically every possible seat extra?

Thanks, 128er, for straightening me out. I'll have to live with leather.

If you order the sports package you have to include the power seats.

From what I understand leatherette is just as good as leather and requires less maintance. The only downside is they only come in black and toupe.

The sports package and power seats can be ordered independently of each other.
