Question windshield wash for the rear window?

Does 2014 X3 have windshield wash fluid for the rear window wiper? I'm on a road trip to a ski resort, but I can't find out how to spray windshield wash to the rear window.

Wish that enough dealers who have done this would press BMW to put the oil dipstick back. Removing a simple and fail-safe feature without any gain is a stupid idea. :cry:

No, I'm ordering a 28i without MSport. I'll consider M Sport with 35i, not on 28i.

Do you need extra options in order to play music on a USB stick connected to the USB port? Or it's standard? I'm shopping for an X3 too. It seems little complicated to choose among those options.
