If you ordered them you will have them. It was just misinformation that they would be suddenly stopped.

Edit: I should note that ventilated seats are standard on the M50i so no need for ordering anything but the vehicle.

Though I would add five years ago I (and others) got a nice check from BMWNA because a feature we ordered, and that was in the literature, was not on our vehicles when delivered. It was also rumored at the time as no longer offered and declared wrong until our cars started showing up without it.

These things do happen ...

I'm sure they do but in this case it seems the false information was based on differences in the Luxury Seating packages between the pricing guide and the Configurator early in the MY. The poster was the only person here to be told this by their dealer and others specifically asked their dealer about it and was told there was no problems with the ventilated seats.

Again, though, all of that was exactly the same as our scenario with maybe one difference: in our case it was BMWNA -> BMW AG Regensburg whereas in this case it's BMWNA -> BMWNA Spartanburg which obviously BMWNA owns/operates. (is that meaningful? dunno ...)

It seems where the problems happen (and happened in our case) are the country-specific config communications between the importer and the factory; Any errors cascade into the docs/websites, the dealers really have no idea, and the question becomes if the errors are caught in time before cars start down the line. (in our case they originally thought it was just a documentation error)

It's not a big deal if the cars are dealer orders (and of course we don't find out about those), but if they're priority 1s then customers end up finding out.

In this case, hopefully you're right and it ends up being a paperwork screwup vs something that made it to the factory. (BMWNA would know for sure)

Please explain, what is the screwup you are referring to? There has been absolutely zero instances of a vehicle being built or delivered without ventilated seats when they should have been there. The OP posted that back in August and no one, anywhere, at any time has been told anything close to that. It is nothing, please do not try to rile people up just for the sake of doing so.

sometimes turt, you really are too much! You need to get a job with BMWNA so you can get paid for all of the advocating you do on their behalf. Reach out to Scott and he can probably hook you up.

In the meantime, here's the point:
BMW occasionally fucks up car orders; It's happened to me and other forum members ... because, as it turn out, BMW isn't perfect hard for you to accept, I know. Here's the better part: BMW has made it right with all of us AFAIK.

So the message for people is, shit happens, don't expect perfection because companies aren't perfect, though if BMW does make a mistake, they'll make it right, at least they have for me and others.

As I said many posts ago they definitely do but that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. It can theoretically happen with any option or feature at any time but in response to the post that started this discussion there is no additional need to worry about that happening.

I never understand how looking at a situation logically and factually is taken for advocation of a particular stance. Of course that always seems to done by folks who either don't understand the topic or are posting out of emotion.

You don't know that, and shit happens. Hopefully everything works out, sometimes it doesn't, better to let people know if doesn't BMW will make it right.

Never mind, I really thought you were just confused. Turns out you are a troll trying to rile people up. Iím done with your childish postings and attempts to get people going. You obviously donít have the maturity to follow a simple discussion without interjecting a load of crap in an effort to confuse and worry folks. Iím sure others have picked up on your nonsense also so hopefully being ignored will cause you to fade back into the woodwork so the adults can have a discussion.

As per your usual MO, you can gladly come back with the last word to make yourself feel better.

When I ordered mine at the end of June 2020, it was delayed because the seats were backordered (ventilated). It may have been just the color. Anyway, it arrived in early September with them as ordered after a delay. During that time, the packages were slightly shuffled.
