What happened to rear i-Drive knob with rear entertainment

Just saw my new B7 at the prep center, car looks great but a little disappointed when I noticed no rear idrive knob or wood on the rear center console? WTF? I was picturing that nice piano black wood and ceramic I drive knob in the rear
I see a remote in the trunk and thought that was in addition to rear idrive for rear entertainment
So I guess you can access everything else on idrive from the remote just like in my E65?? Navigation, phone, music, CDs etc
I have seen photos of F cars with rear i drive knob?? What part am I missing?

The US models do not get the Professional Rear Entertainment only the Business System.
and no you cannot access the Navigation, Telephone, etc. just the radio, settings and cd/multimedia

There's a lot you don't get being a US car. I don't care about what we got, just what we didn't get that was shown on so many websites and the launch car when the car was intro'd. Oh well, still a great car.

BMW NA should'n show US options and features we can't get in our cars even if we want to pay extra for. It's very disappointing
