2013 M package without premium package

To order the 2013 M package you don't have to put premium package, which means you don't get leather
the question is what kind of seats do you get? Leatherette sports seats? Does anyone has a picture of it?
And is Leatherette sports seats with manual adjustments or electric adjustments?

actually for those who wants to know I think I found the answer myself
these are the seats you get for non premium M package cars

I m still waiting for mine to come, when I first ordered I didn't order the leather package in Canada (seperate), but after a week of consideration and I had change to red brown leaher instead.. cause I couldn't find any good pics on site showing leatherette. as I think if add black leather is the same as leathereete and try to safe some. in canada leather by it self cause another $1900 is quite pricey...

But seems pretty nice with yours... **great choice**..

How about the doors panel are they come with leatherette as well... ? could you able to share some pics...

Post no.1 is a pic of my car. The door panels and trim match the leatherette nicely.

I considered leather because it was the only way to get heated rear seats... Those two things would have added close to $3000 to the bottom line pushing my x3 to $70,000.

In the end the leather did not offer sufficient value.

How do you guys like/not like not having lumbar support? Is that something that you even miss? I've been playing with the BMW configurator for a new 335i and this is one of the things I'm struggling with. Without the Premium package the only thing I really feel like I might miss is the lumbar support. I can't find any local examples that don't have lumbar so it's hard to decide.

I test drove the X3 with lumbar support and came from an E90 without lumbar support. I would suggest paying the little bit extra to get the lumbar support.

Lumbar support is a must and honestly should be standard. My 335 doesn't have lumbar and after long trips or long day I can feel my lower back hurting. The X3 on the other hand makes a big difference.
