Default Split Fold Down Rear Seats

I was wondering if this was standard or an option on M3s . The other day i was cleaning the rear seats and realized they both fold down to gain access to the trunk . I had a 325is , and the rears did not fold down so i thought it might be an option only .

i can't remember which way this goes...whether fixed or folding was the option. But there are far more M3's with folding rear seats then there are with fixed rear seats

Yeah, I just can't seem to find folding rears in black for a sedan...

It was an option on the sedan (lol, what wasn't). IIRC, it was $150ish.

I wonder if people realized how rare nonfolding seats would be in the future when they decided what to choose

I can't find folding rears anywhere. Everyone has fixed back rears.

If you didn't have a sun roof you would have the best version of our cars to take to the track

that's probably why all you see are fixed back seats...everyone is stripping them out to go track
