I'd definitely pass on the seats and go for the B&O.

Not a day goes by that I don't regret passing on the B&O system. I skipped the ventilated seats and haven't given it a second thought. I actually prefer the non-perforated leather. I live I Alabama, so I know all about summer heat and that combo with a black on black car. The car does get toasty in the summer, but the parked car ventilation combined with the brilliant A/C never left me uncomfortable. The car always cools off quickly once you get past the initial heat. I doubt that the little fans that circulate air would do a lot to remedy this initial burst of heat. The Bimmer system isn't as good as the GM system in our Denali that actually cools the seat. It's painful to admit that GM beats BMW at something, but this difference left me cold to the BMW seats (sorry, couldn't help the pun ).

Get the B&O. They sound great and look even better. It may not be worth the price on most cars, but most cars aren't 6ers.
