Even ambient would be perfect for me. I love driving with my windows down on country roads but the heat inevitably makes my back sweat, and with no ventilation or circulation back there I get out with a soaking wet back & shirt. I don't need it to feel cool, I just need the air flow to wick away the moisture.

I'm stoked for the ventilated seats too; that and AWD were two of my must have features for my next car. And I'd rather have another M4 than an X4M so these features sets are looking great. I just hope the AWD is $2K or something and not more. That would already put my build over the $85K mark. If they price Ultimate Care plans like they do on the current F82 it's getting to $90K!

What is the build code to spec the black chrome tailpipes on the base manual? The Canadian configurators list that option as "$0 Without Exterior Lines Designation".

Edit: Found this on the Canadian ordering guide but can't tell whether 3DE or Z0T adds the black chrome tailpipes. And either option deletes other gloss black bits?? I don't get it.

3DE Without Exterior Lines Designation
3DE will delete STD or 100% equipment 7M9

Z0T Without Exterior Lines Designation
Z0T will delete STD or 100% equipment 7M9

7M9 High-Gloss Black Exterior Contents

Just looking at the canadian configurator, the base model manuals already come with the shadowline trim and black chrome tail pipes as standard

US option code for this is 7M9 "Extended shadowline trim"


If you go to the german configurator, there's a 0$ option for shadowline trim as the base manual comes with chrome tail pipes and body colored mirrors as standard

Perfect. This helps a ton, thanks!

I have the F90 M5 ventilated seats. Yes it just circulates air behind your back but in climates like Miami, southern Louisiana, Texas, Atlanta in summer this air circulation evaporates sweat and cools you off. Once the A/C kicks in after a few minutes the ventilated seats can be turned off. But they do have a role in extremely hot & humid climates.

It's in the name too after all; "Ventilated seats", not "Cooling Seats". It's a huge step up from a solid slate of cow hide against my back.
