    Hi,

    I was wondering, how common are folding rear seats in the 3 series (E46)? For example, when looking in Autotrader, very few people list these as a feature - I was wondering if this was because very few cars had them or very few people bothered to list them...?

    Cheers,

    Reuben

    i noticed when i was looking to buy my car people listing that as a feature!!

    then again you also see things like power steering listed! i would think though that folding rear seats is fairly standard on e46s?? wouldnt of thought it was an optional extra!!
