8-way power seats

According to the window sticker, I got 8-way adjustable power seats.. Attaching a picture of what I have.

How's this an 8-way adjustment? I looked in the manual, seems like some manual seats have more features than my "8-way" seat. Was this misadvertised and I really didn't get the 8-way seat?

1) forward
2) back
3) front up
4) front down
5) back up
6) back down
7) backrest up
8) backrest down

its like buying a 20 piece cookware set... and finding out the pots and the lids are counted separately

nope, the base car (without lumbar and bolster adjustments) have 8 way seats.

The bottom left slider has 3 sets of switches:

1. Forward and backwards,
2. Front up and down
3. Rear up and down.

that's 6 "ways" plus the 2 for the backrest.

I also have a round lumbar switch that you don't seem to have. My cars is a '12 328i Luxury Line and does not have sports seats.
