Luxury Rear Seating Qs

Can someone please post a few pics of the luxury rear seating package with the seats folded down?

Also can you confirm that the divider/partition gets removed rather than folded down? If it can be removed, can you please post a pic with the seats up and it removed.

thanks!

Hello. I would love to post pics for you, but I am away from home on vacation. I will be home on Sun and will post pics then unless someone beats me to it.

@ gt:
I've posed this question in another thread and also asked the service guy at our dealer with no definitive answer... (and I realize you have a newer MY) but do you have the ability to lower the seat belt buckles so they don't create an imprint on the side bolsters when folded? Yes it goes away with time but I would really prefer it so they don't press into the leather if at all possible. I haven't monkeyed with them a lot but they appear to be set like the front seats and not a traditional rear seat buckle attachment to the vehicle (if that makes sense!).

I can send pics of it on our 2013 550GT if you like.
If you're referring to 2014 they may be different.
Ours has the rear comfort electrically adjustable seats.
Please let me know

I am looking at a 2010 and a 2011 both with the luxury rear seats. I am not near either of them and will be purchasing sight unseen....Pics of the seats up close upright and folded in sections would be great!!

I am hoping that the with the top luggage cover removed and the center partition/trunk divider folded down (and both seats still in use) that the center space will be open up to the rear glass so that my dogs in the back can stick their head through.....and that the divider folds forward and covers the leather top of the center armrest.

Thank you!!! Exactly the pics that I needed. You confirmed exactly what I was hoping for. Fold down section just in the middle with bot seats still up and the top cover removed. Hopefully I will have a "new" 550gt soon!

Rogue, check your PM from me. I don't want to discourage your enthusiasm but I posted some pics showing true space...it is a much tighter fit than I suspected and I visited the dealer at least 3x before deciding to purchase. We couldn't be happier with the vehicle but the space available behind the seats is quite limited, especially if trying to fit 2 dogs of your size back there.

P.S. I wasn't calling you a dog ;-)

I agree that if they are big dogs there will be an issue. I tired to take one of the pics to show that the room Berhing the seats is limited. If measurements or more pics with something to reference size will help let me know..
