I just played with the configurator. Seems like they have removed some things and bundled others. Net, the cost for a the car I would want is up about $4K. I use the sun shades constantly here in Arizona and the rear side shades are now manual

Decontenting is bull****. Also, it comes with the crappy eco mode start stop function. My wife's 2012 535 has it and the default on is a pain in the ass.

I may just keep my 2010.

Seems like with so many things code-able on these cars you should be able to have it changed to default off for the eco mode function.

The shades aren't manual.
Not sure why the configurator says that, but that's a "typo" that dates all the back to 2009.

I think I remember reading that the rear shade was still electric but now the side ones are manual.

No, they are all electric. The previous poster is right. They just made a typo in the configurator.
