Same happened in this thread, where the package for which "power" rear sunshades was to be a part of listed the 7's rear shades as being "manual" - when they were actually alwasy "power" - because the 5 Series had the same package, but with "manual" rear shades:

If that makes any sense.
It does make a lot of sense - so most likely, they just used "copy & paste" when setting up the individual description on the F10.

Wow, that's bad - especially on a press announcement..

Funny - that's the exact same car I posted the picture of before. Seems that there aren't too many F10s out there with individual composition.
