Seat recirculation. It's mentioned in the manual. I assume it's a fan in the seat that turns on and off to move air through it.

actually I think they are active seats, meaning they make minor adjustments over longer drives to keep you more comfortable, the thing next to sport is the rear window shade.

That is correct. I had them on my 02 530, and it uses air bladder on the seat cushion (alternately filling the left or right) to vary the spine angle to help with stiff back.

AFAIK, the comfort seats were not a USA option... only available in non-USA markets, at least on the m5. The comfort seat option is available on 5 and 7 series.

WHat does the seat in this car look like?

"Comfort seat" is differnet than "sport" interior/seats and "luxury" interior seat

Woops. Active Seat, I remember now. My bad. Seat recirculation would have been a better option anyway :/

I also remember reading that the comfort seats have an adjustable side bolster that can be moved forward and back.

I was just waiting for this thread to start getting silly--thanks ard!!! It has such great potential. Just looking at that button gives me all kinds of ideas
