What would you do?? Sport package or A/C seats??

Which would you choose and why?? For some reason a/c seats are appealing to me.. however the sport package makes the car sit so nice.. plus i love the steering wheel!

Best of both worlds... my forthcoming '07 750 will be a Sport with Luxury seats. (My current '05 745 Sport only has Comfort seats.)

I went for the Butt coolers.

But then I have every option but the sport package. Was on BMW's tab.

Comfort seats with ventilation for sure. The seatback also bends on the comfort seats.

sport package

Sport package,it affects every part of driving the car. The sport seats are very good,just not ventilated or articulated. If handling is important go sport!

When I was looking for my used 2003 I had to make the same choice. Being a bigger guy, the sports seats just didn't cut it for me. I loved the look of the sport package but I just wan't comfortable sitting in the sport seats for any length of time. The ventilated seats really do make a big difference. I'd like to make sure that all of my future cars have this option.

I totally agree. Get both. The vent. seats are great in the summer time and adjustable in just about any possible way you can think of.

I have both, and have to say, the seats are nice to have particularly when traveling.

If you want a cushy tushy get the comfort seats. Great for achy's. Long rides too. LOL

If you are spending that much for a car, get both. The seats are great, particularly on long trips. I hate having a sweaty back and being stuck to the seat. So much has already been said re Sport, so no need to comment there. Again, get both.

I thought I had a sport model, but I know I have the comfort seats because mine do all of what's listed above. I have a 19" spare N the trunk and I thought those wheels were on the sports package...now I'm confused again????

You have the sport package if the trim around your windows is blacked out.

Mine has all been painted the color of the car (bought it like that0 so I'm not sure. Like I said it has the 19" sport wheel N the truck and I have the comfort seats.

Sport pkg. But I have to agree with some of the other people here, why don't you get both? If your financing the car adding the A/C seats if your already going with the sports package should barely affect your payment...
