Default lumbar support question

okay guys unfortunately i am having some back/spine issues these days with a bulging disc.

apparently my car doesn't have the lumbar support as shown in the owner's manual, which leads to a few questions:

1) is there a lumbar support in the seat but i'm just not seeing it?
2) perhaps i have the wrong owner's manual? (it doesn't have the M designation anywhere on it as far as i can tell)

thanks in advance.

what type of seats do you have? vaders? Lux? i don't think any of them have lumbar support...I know the vaders certainly don't. you could always get a lumbar pad

I have the retarded Lux seats and they push my lower back out way too far. I prefer a flat backed seat. I really wish there was a way to adjust this...

Meh. If I were going to spend money on seats I would get racing seats.

I have seen seats with lumbar, but I think it was only offered on the Lux Sport seats. Maybe it was also a BMW individual option?

Lumbar Support was a Euro option that a few NA cars got through the Individual Program.

It is a bladder in the seat with a small switch that goes in the blank accessory panel just below your hip on the lower plastic frame of the seat (rearwards of the seat controls).

It is retrofittable.
