    Just looking at the photos recently taken that show back seats with what appear to be buckets and no centre headrest (which has been quite an issue around here at least). Thoughts?

    I bet this is a prototype rear seat for the Chinese market. There was noise last year that high income earners in China get chauffeured a lot and would prefer a more relaxing rear seat experience. There is also supposedly a console between those two seats... very interesting.

    Looks like it. There's been a VIN digit for this configuration for awhile now.

    Any images of these seats anywhere?? I would have ordered these for sure! Maybe the temporary seats in my D can be replaced with these instead of the next-gen back seats?? :)

    Could this be the rear "executive" seats that the manual (the new one, not sure if it was in the old one or not) is referring to?
