I was stunned!!!
Can't believe they dont have it standard!!!
It's true in the U.S. I'm therefore as stunned as you that it apparently isn't true in Canada.

It's the biggest bummer!!!

Like showing a kid his favourite candy and telling him that a part of it is missing! LOL

It's really sad!

And now I'm even more pissed to know that US models have it and we dont!

Not true.
I specced them on my 2006 E60 520d - silent.
2009 E90 LCI 330d - silent.
2012 F30 328i - silent.

They're absolutely solid so these prejudices of them rattling and making noise are now, total rubbish.They might've been back in the day, although I had a 2003 Jaguar X-Type and that had split folding seats to the refinement of the BMW's.
This may be true for less reputable car companies, such as Mercedes
I joke!

This. I finally went to use the fold down option recenty which I understood came in my car and it took me 15 mins to find the damn levers!

RTFM?!?!!! That was no help. Found the by trial and error / process of elimination.
