Heated Rear Seats !?

I don't think anyone has touched on this yet... The 2007 X3 apparently has a rear heated seat option, which was never offered before.

From BMWUSA.com (http://www.bmwusa.com/vehicles/futur.../newx3/default)

"New styling touches inside include a new, high-quality dashboard material and optional new Nevada leather upholstery. Three new real wood trims are available, which adorn even more of the cabin. And for the ultimate custom fit, 16-way adjustable Comfort Seats will be available in the X3. Optional heated rear seats (part of the Cold Weather Package) are perfect for trips home from the slopes, while the optional heated steering wheel keeps the driver's hands happy."

Typo or do you think the refreshed X3 does indeed have heated rear seats? I'm excited to see where they would put the buttons and if they revised the center console to do so...

I read the same thing and frankly I think it's about time. I'm guessing that's actually heated seats - but they could also use some ventilation back there as the cavernous expanse of the X3 make it difficult to keep cool/warm. Add those new features with the 260HP engine and I'll be in heaven!

I can't wait. I will look at trading my 06' in for a new one when I get back to the states in 2008. Although I won't like the price I will have to pay.

That was one option I wished for on the wish list. I hope they also remembered to put lit rear window switches.......on '04s you're left totally in the dark back there at night.

heated rear seats are nice, but they would not be useful for us. we have no kids, and when our dog travels with us, he sits in the cargo area. only our bags go in the back seat, and of course, they don't need to be kept warm...
