Mfgs tend to keeps certain systems as close as possible, to spread the platform r&d costs. In regards the X5, the E70 had two versions thru its lifecycle. Multi contour seats were originally introduced as comfort seats on the E65 7 series. When the e70 was introduced, the comfort seats were designed from the original design of the e65. Following the introduction of the f01 the comfort seats were redesigned and renamed as the multi-contour seats. This design slowly found its way thru subsequent F- platform introductions such as the 5. During the LCI, BMW designed to refreshed the E70 seat offerings, and switched it over to the modern f-01 based multi-contour seats, currently offered.
