Ordering Question

I am getting a build together to replace my 2015 F15. Anyone know why the 3rd row can not be ordered on an Alpine White X5? 2017 and 2018 ordering guides say 4UB can not be ordered with 300.

Thanks

Alpine White, just as with wedding dresses, is reserved for ordering only by vestal virgins. As vestal virgins would have no children, they would have no need for the third-row seat. That's why the two can't be ordered together.

300, in addition to being the paint color code, is also the option code for a spare tire. Since the spare tire tire, the third row seats, and the batteries in the 40e take up the same space, you can only have one.

The alternate theory is what ddhafti said.
