Okay, I hear you. I had never heard of or seen one in Europe but perhaps you got all of them in the US. Same mirrors as on the '09 I notice. Looks better than the round ones we got :thumb

I don't see any reason at all for BMW to have measured the '07 seat height at anything but zero preload so that I think can be ruled out.
