That all i've found so far! Re comments on electric sports seats. I definitely did not order full electric, expected electric height and backrest but got full memory seats. IMO electric (part also) is essential if you have more than one driver (i often like to change my seat position with doing so many miles actually). Instead of the daft BM height adjustment - why can't they have a ratchet like everyone else?
The rear board with the rails on it can be turned over also, although for the life of me I can't remember what the advantage was. I saw it on one of the US videos I think.

It can and I've turned it so (part of) the carpet stays clean. I thought that I was getting a reversible mat, is this it! Not great if so. The area outside of the rails are carpet when the centre section is turned.

Hi Dobs, thanks for the write up. Convinced I need to get Luggage added.

Well done on the seats. I removed the seat package to control budget, happily knowing (assuming) the Sports seats would have electric up/down adjustment as described on the configurator at the time I placed my order .

As noted on the "Mineral Silver last Saturday" thread...

Looked on Uk config - if you add the Extended Luggage Option you see the front silver cupholders. And even better the drivers side glove/glasses box now appears rather than the blank moulding.

Anone spotted other changes along the way.

Definitely worth adding extended storage. One of the things I regret not adding. I hope to get some shopping bag hooks separately though and I'm not keen on the nets

All though many of us moan at the configurator it has become known to posters above that actually the options you tick are detailed on the configurator. The rear luggage net, for example, can be seen through the side windows if checked (may be not with priv glass) same for nav pro - the dash changes to eliminate the MPG gauge. that said I only noticed these myself after reading here that nav pro changes the screen size and dash!

very observant! But do the back windows get darker if you add window blinds to SP glass? (they do in real life)

I was hoping to see where the additional speakers get added.

sfax you'll know. Are any located in the rear luggage area like on my Touring?

Not for business speakers, no, only in the front and back doors and centre. Might get them there with pro setup

Those that Max3 mentioned came with my 20d...all the while I thought they were standard?
1. Glove box on drivers's side. (Mrs B was the one who discovered it when she drove and looked for a place for her sunnies case)
2. 12V socket in the rear- definitely standard - son was charging his DSi while on test drive. (so 3 12V sockets in total in the car- front, rear and boot)
3. 2 cupholders in the rear centre armrest.

Hope this helps.
