330D tourer option confusion

Hi all,
Placed an order today for 330D m sport tourer but as dealer has not seen one yet both he and I were a bit confused as to what options to include.
Hope some one here might know if the car comes with a sliding front arm rest or not? It says it does in the brochure but comes up on configurator as a cost option. I don't want to pay for something that is standard!
Also, what does extended storage on a tourer include? Dealer did not know and did not know if it was worth getting.
Thanks for any info.

I can't help with your specific questions I'm afraid .... But what kind of dealer is this? Doesn't sound like they now their stuff! I'd be tempted to find another dealer who can get the answers your looking for ... Not just saying they don't know.

Unfortunately this is common. BMW aren't very good at communicating the details of options for every model.

I would tend to believe the comparator, the brochures and price lists are often wrong. For example the front parking sensors are listed as an option for the 330D M Sport, but in fact are included standard.

I am not at all surprised as in my experience, having done my research I have always known more than the sales guys in the past.
The dealer is the guy I bought my 520 from and they are offering me the best trade in allowance to buy the 330d.
The demo they have is an se model and has extended storage but they could not tell me what would not be there on a car without it!
Anybody know?

Mine has extended storage as part of the interior storage pack. Not got the car, so don't know exactly what that means. I now it will have the nets on the back of the front seats. Not sure what else. As I say, BMW aren't great at listing exactly what you get.

Nets on the back of the seatd, two 12v sockets, side net in the boot and another net for the boot floor.

Curious now, loaded up one of my previous configurations and its saying one of my selections isnt available anymore. Wonder what, either now is standard or they dont do anymore.

Think the storage pack also gives the little extra tray to the right of the steering wheel - or at least mine (with no storage pack) doesn't have that.

Thats pitiful if you don't even get that tray as standard.
