Glass control volume knob ?

Can anyone confirm if this is suppose to be glass too ? The start button, shifter and Idrive controller are all glass but I think I read somewhere the volume knob is suppose to be too.

I read it somewhere even the ambient lighting at the back seat is not available if you don't have Skylounge and/or extended Marino leather. Don't know if it's true or not....

IMO, BMW cheap out in 2021....

I think supply shortages of a lot of things due to covid didn't help, I'll try and survive without the glass knob and heated/cooled cup holders but it won't be easy

Order from Car Technology. They are the only reliable source.

I don't believe they sell these. Well, I haven't been able to find them, other than the link someone posted from Aliexpress.

Sorry - I meant Car Analysis. They will be offering it before the end of the month. They sent me the prototype and it is perfect.

I have their iDrive and start/stop buttons as well. I also ordered a start/stop button through Aliexpress and it did not fit as promised. This is the only company I would trust for these things. I believe the volume knob will go for $29.95.

Ok, yes I purchased the trio (start/stop, gear shifter, idrive controller) from them but hadn't seen the vol knob. I'll keep an eye out. Thanks!

My 2021 model does have ambient lighting at the back seat (with no merino, no sky lounge).

I think that ambient light on the backseat is included in the "travel & comfort" option, adding the usb and coathanger sockets.
If you don't have that, there's nothing physical on the seat for any ambient light to "hide behind"

Oh, I was thinking about the doors only, they have ambient lights - no lights in the seats (even with the USB sockets).
