too late but curious

Does anyone know if power sunshades were an option on 2012 550GT?? when i built mine i saw them only offered as option with luxury rear seat package..which i did not want..back seat is comfy enough... but now i keep seeing pics pop up with people that have them without the rear set lux pkg...not sure if this was an option only outside of US...

We buy a lot of BMWs why are we not treated equally...

I do not see it listed separately in the 2012 ordering guide, but only as part of the Luxury Seating Packages. I recall seeing it on the 2011 order as an individual option in the neighborhood of $500(?) because I considered it - then eliminated it based upon price....

Is BMW limited due to federalization (?) - and with the limited sales they federalize specific packages ??

I asked when ordering and was told no. But I wanted the ventilated front seats anyway and planned on getting the Luxury Seating package. Odd that rear sunshades are included in the Luxury Seating Package and not the Luxury Rear Seating package. Worked better for me because I had no interest in the Rear Seating package.

I ordered the lux seats and got them on our 535i GT for the rear side windows. I dont think you can get the shade for the rear at all in the GT.

Looks like these can be ordered

and then installed by a dealer.
