Just got mine. I ordered the premium package which comes with “power front seats with lumbar, massage, and adjustable back width”. Seats. Plural. Mine only has massage and adjustable back width on the drivers seat. That seems crazy and a little misleading

I noticed that when I tried to order and/or get one that in the U.K. has the comfort pack on, which adds massage it adds an additional option to delete lumbar support and with adjustment… Afaik the lumbar is used for the massage too so as you say really rubbish on this spec of car. A couple of dealers said it was down to chip shortages and the BMW website does seem to state this but in an unclear manner :(

And only a £300 reduction you still get the seat heating and cooling functions

This is chintzy and unacceptable for a car of this class. I would expect this from Tesla, but not from BMW. Boo! Hiss! May have to cancel my order until the world gets its sh*t together.

Didn't seem to indicate any reduction, did they reduce the cost of the Comfort/Comfort Plus pack then? Wasn't sure what the price was before.
Was listed at £3200 and charged £2900
I suppose if supply was limited better to be able to build 1000 cars than 500
There are more features missing mainly software related those I am aware of - any to add ?

No manouver assistant
No GPS link to Panoramic view (T Junction) its got the auto window lower function !
No Hotspot App

Along with some other manufacturers and industries, we have had to make adjustments to our production programme to take into account the worldwide limited availability of semiconductor components. This means there are some production restrictions in place that may impact delivery dates and the availability of certain equipment. BMW retailers across the UK are best placed to provide updates on approximate lead times for new car orders.

Where in the configurator does it say that?

Am I the only one that thinks this couldn’t be more vague?

For what it's worth, the massage seats in the IX isn't anything worth talking about... The one on my 750i wasn't as good as the MB S-class and this one is even worse. On the IX it's only in the back, no longer on the seat part and it has less features than the 750i... I was pissed too at first that it wouldn't be on the passenger side, now I'm happy I'm saving money 😂
