Some questions about the different seats

Do the Sport-line seats come with lumbar support or do you need to the get Premium package for that. Is lumbar power of manual?

Finally, the M-sport seats seem to get their own designation. How different are they from the Sport-line seats?

Thanks.

Someone correct me if I'm mistaken. Sport Line seats WITHOUT the premium package come with lumbar support built in but it is non-adjustable.

No difference between M-Sport and Sportline seats.

Not sure w/o PP. with PP, the sport seats do have lumbar support and it is adjustable electronically. I never use it, feels like someone poking me in the back.

In the Sport Line, the leaher seats have highlighted stitching in them. For example, the black leather seats in the Sport Line have red stitching highlights in them. In the M Sport Line, black leather seats are all black with no off color stitching.

The red stitching on the black leather Sport Line seats is one of the reasons I will not buy a Sport Line. Looks too Cameroish for my tastes.

These locked in configurations for options and colors for the variois Lines in the F30 series are a big detractor for me personally.

Nope. Lumbar support ONLY comes with the premium package. Lumbar support is power. It is adjustable in and out and up and down.

The color of the stitching is the only difference between the Sport and M Sport seats. Calling them M Sport seats is really a misnomer.
