My question to you all is this, why does the Sport Package double charge for the multi-coutour seats ($900) when the Active Ventilation lists them as part of the package ($2100)? I brought this up with my dealer and he couldn't respond adequately, instead bumped the question up to his regional manager with BMW. Still waiting for a response from them.

The second question I have is, does active ventilation work adequately in the BMW?
I see multi seats cost 1400
If you get the Sport pkg they are only 900 more.
If you get the ventilated seats they are included.

So you don't order the multi contour seats if you get sport+vent.

That's my understanding...

Oh, I'd never get ventilated seats- the leather perforation reduces the life of the seats, makes them harder to keep clean, etc
