The BMWUSA website allows you to select the power seats w/ memory as an option (@$995). The X1 Ordering Guide does not seem to allow you to do that and the only way to get power seats w/ memory is if you order the Premium Package. Bmwconfig.com also does not allow you to select is as a standalone option. So, is the BMWUSA website wrong?

are you using the build feature? I would say yes it is wrong, but all things are subject to change so it doesn't hurt to ask your CA. I wish it had been available as a stand alone when I ordered. My CA said that it wasn't available. That's the only thing I really wanted from the Prem Pkg.

Yes you can order it as a stand alone option for s/x 28i for 995.00

what is the option code? I ordered in June. The Pricing and Ordering guides dated July 1, don't list it as an option. Perhaps there is a newer revision now...

July 1st AM ordering guide no but July 1st PM ordering guide yes

As of Aug production (459) power front seats with memory may be ordered a la carte

Thanks to this thread we ended up reordering my car... I didn't even know BMW made cars without power seats. We called our CA and our car had already gone into production so they had to order us a new one. She felt bad for not going over it with us and we just assumed they were power without memory which was why you had to buy the memory option. Guess that was a lesson learned. So anyone else looking to but it.... Unless you order this option the seats are ALL manual, as in levers like a cheap kia or something.

I am glad as started this thread. It prevented at least one mistake!... (thanks Justin). It seems that there are 2 different Ordering Guides out there. Can somebody post the 2nd and latest one? I downloaded 2 from 2 different sites but they appear to be the same (the one not listing 459 as an option).
