E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Using back seat without power seats....

Curious what the procedure is for moving the front seats forward without out power seats. Does the pull type release allow the front seats to move forward or is there a different lever?

I'm pretty sure the pull handle will allow the seat to slide forward as well as angle the front seat backrest forward.

You should use the handle at the top of the seat if you have manual seats. The seat first tilts forward and then slides forward. When you slide it back, it goes to where it was. If you use the handle under the seat to slide forward and then tilt the seat, the seat does not go back where it started. Otherwise they both work.
