Power Rear Sunshade?

Do any regions offer the Power Rear Sunshade like they have in all other 3 series cars in the past decade or so? The BMW USA site does not have it as an option, but I really find it useful.

I like--"grandma shutters." I like the option to be able to lower the rear back glass at night. Plus, I have two kids in the back seat, so the side shades are nice to have.

It did not appear that any of the configurators from other countries had it as an option either.

Looks like no side shades either? I like having them and the rear blind, you can take them down when you want to, a little tough to do with tint.

It isn't an either/or situation. I have 3m Crystalline tint and rear sun shade option. I like the sun shades for security masking as well as solar heat management.

I just picked up my M340i and was disappointed to learn the the manual rear passenger sunshades and the motorized rear window sunshades were no longer available. Such a useful thing, why remove it? I have always tinted my windows up to maximum legal limit, but the addition of sunshades added even more solar heat protection and privacy. I liked having them. Now the darkest legal limit to tinting in Toronto is 30%. It used to be 20%. With that in mind it would have been great to still have the sunshades.

I like the rear/side sunshades as well. I have had them optioned on EVERY BMW that I have owned, from regular 3-Series' to ///M's to X5's. I hope they are available on the new ///M. I'm not a fan of tint really. I just don't like it on my personal vehicles, but I understand why most people like tint (...even though it poses a danger for me professionally).

Yeah, explain why this car somehow doesn't need the sunshades.

I agree with the tinting, especially for those living in very hot locations. I have done both. A good nano tint doesn't have to darken the cabin but can still reduce heat load.

Shoot- I agree with tinting too! I chose 3m Crystalline film... But it doesn't lessen my love for my roller shade. The roller shade is actually a great compliment to the tint as the shade provides additional heat rejection and security on demand while I use a light (70%) tint film.
