Is this missing in your car or just a QAQC problem

Somehow my car missing covering cap seat rail from the factory, I didn't believe that 150k USD car sell does not come with this if it is an option. Please anyone confirm me that your car have this or not. I found this missing item accidentally and not sure may be other parts missing as well. Where I can buy those covering cap seat rail.
Thanks.

part number 13

Part 13 goes on the front of the rails. Your picture appears to be looking at the back of the rails. My '14 x25 has the depicted caps on the front but not on the back.

I noticed this when I picked up my car in April. I agree it probably is a place where you could injure your toe if you were seated in the rear and wearing open-toed shoes.

I pointed this out before I took delivery of the car. Discussions with the parts dept confirmed there is no part to cover it.

Then we tested it in the driveway:

There is no cap on the rear of the rail. The seat slides back over the end of the rail and if there were a cap, the seat would not go back as far as it should OR the sliding rails would rip the cap off.

I agree that it is not a good design. The best I can think of it to warn your backseat passengers to wear steel toed boot to protect themselves
