Question X1 Sport Seats - Power Side Bolsters?

I realize you must order the Sport or MSport package to get the sport seats. Also to get power seats I believe you must order the Premium package. My question is if you order the Sport or MSport package to get the sport seats do they come with power adjustable side bolsters? (If you order the premium package with sport seats, do these come with power adjustable side bolsters.) I am in the US and 1 dealer I asked said you can not get an X1 with power adjustable side bolsters. Thx.

Mein Auto: X1 xDrive28i M Sport
I just picked up my M Sport last night. Although mine has manual seats (slide, recline, tilt, height, etc.), it does indeed have power side bolsters. There is a rocker switch on the front corner of the seating area that seems to pump/release air into bladders in the seat's side bolsters. Both driver and passenger seats have this mechanism.

Glad you confirmed the bolsters. We have a sport X1 on order and the original posting made me a bit nervous since my wife has some back problems and the sport seat bolsters are a must for her; on our present and past 3 series cars.
For "Dijman" I have attached a page from the online manual showing the seat switch.

Thanks for the information. Much appreciated. I had a short test drive of an X1 with regular power seats. Vehicle was awesome but I was not overly impressed with the seats. I will have to test drive the powered sport seats for comparison.

I think that is the control for the lumbar support ( which comes on the leather seats only )

The lumbar switch is a 4 direction switch, while the bolster switch is a rocker switch.

This is correct. My manual Sport seats have a 2-way rocker switch on the front corner (not a 4-direction switch on the side). The control is labeled "Backrest width" on GerWil's attached .pdf document.

I stand corrected - that will show you how much I have focused on the seats while having a toddler to wrangle. Got the seats comfortable initially put it in memory and have not fiddled much when driving it
