Question Sports Seating.. Which Z4 has it?

I'm looking for a 2006 or newer soft top Z4 with Sports seating with the thigh extender. I have seen plenty of Z4's with Sports Package, but none of them have the sports seating.

Are they labeled wrong or is it an additional option outside of sports package?

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Don't quote me, because I'm still learning the Z myself, but I think your observation stands true and that the M sports seats were an additional option on top of ZSP.

Sport seats were an option on all Z4 models from I think mid 2004 (2005 for certain) and up. They were standard on the Z4M.

Are the seats an a la carte option or part of a package?

Trying to find one with sports seats since I'm tall and have to have it to be comfortable.

Well I think I may have found one that I like. Just have to go to it. It's out of state.

Hi, I have a 2008 3.0si with the premium and sport option packages, the "M" sport seats were not a part of either package, but I have them as a $500 option, (as listed on my window sticker). the side bolsters are really great and provide a lot of support in hard turns!

Yeah the side bolsters are nice, but my main reason was for the thigh extender. I'm tall and I need that extra support or else t becomes an uncomfortable ride real quick. Have them on the 3 and love them.

Apparently it was marketed differently in the US, as in Canada the 'Sport Package' on my SI included Dynamic Driving Control, 18" Star Spoke Bolted Alloy Wheels (Style 108), and M Sports Seats. Not surprised, as there were differences on other option packages as well.

Yeah, I'm 5'10" and I find that I keep the thigh extender just about all the way in, I havent taken any long trips yet, just got the car 2 weeks ago.

Interesting? my "SportPackage" option listed the 18" wheels and performance tires, and the sport suspension as a $1300 add on, and as previously mentioned the M seats were $500.?
