I have a 1998 BMW 328i ... I was curious if the fold-down seats in the back was an option or came standard. If an option ... how do I do it? I can't seem to find the lever on the inside, is it in the trunk?

Look in your truck at the back of your rear seat. If there is a vertical joint where the two seat halves come together, you have fold down seats. The lever to open them is inside the car on top of each seat. Just push the button down and pull the seat down. It should be very easy to operate. On my 1995, fold down seats were an option.

I have a 98 328i also with split rear fold down seats. The release is on top of the seat back right next to and inboard of each headrest.
