Hi all, first post here.
i ordered my car a week back, given a 6 weeks build ‘ delivery date (Pretty impressive I thought).

I added the comfort pack as I wanted the keyless entry system.
this pack comes with the massage seat which I think is driver side only?
i noticed that adding this option auto selects the ‘ deleted lumbar support passenger side’ option.
my dealer couldn’t answer why adding equipment to the driver side decreases the functionality of the passenger seat.

can anyone here help out/suggest reasoning for this?

Is this an ix40 or an ix50? I have just had my 50 pushed back to July(from end-March).

I think that the massage option uses the lumbar support mechanism, so deleting the lumbar option on the passenger side would delete the massage ability. I have the same on my spec sheet and I have to say, I was hoping for it to be re-instated by May, because I don't think my other half would be very impressed if I have a massage en-route and she doesn't. I read the reason for the deletion is chip/supply shortage, but seriously?

I object in principle to buying an upgrade option and getting physically less delivered than the 'basic' spec
