Cool F32 - I have unlisted options on my Vin

Hi all,
I have recently bought an F32 M Sport with all the options I wanted except one (folding rear seats). When showing off my new ride to some friends, somebody notices two handles at the top of the boot opening ..... yep you guessed, it had folding seats fitted

On the sales advert from the BMW dealership, it did not mention this option (nor memory seats either) and on interogating the Vin number on an online decoder, the folding seats is not even a option - Weird!

So my question is, has anybody else had any extra options added to their car they either didn't spec or wasn't listed, just trying to find out if this is normal?

Cheers
Tiggs

There was a conversation around this the other day. The 60:40 folding seats are standard on the F32 and 40:20:40 seats are an additional option. Not sure about the memory seats but that sounds like a success!!

I was under the impression that 2015 cars they may have been standard but mine is June 2014 so not sure if I got in there early with the update lol

Whatever the situation, you're right Wazman, it's a win!!

Good point, how can I tell as the build date is June 2014?
Are there any obvious differences that you know of?

I have a 2015 F32 built in July of 2014. Nothing about folding seats listed on my VIN, but I have 40:20:40.

Folding seats are standard on all F30 models since MY2013.
