Yep that's the difference between US and Rest of the world (ROT), we have silly rules and regulations that give us different versions of the car. Headlights/reflectors/seats...etc. It's a PITA.
The leather headrests have arrived at the proxy so I'm having them create the shipping and hope to have it here in a couple weeks.
But those were my views as well in terms of if I have to put the seats down, I don't have to mess with anything or move my seat up. I'm 6'2 so I have the seat pretty far back for leg room. But the better view out the rear window will be improved. I do know when I put the head rests down and folded position, I was like wow, this is so much better... you can actually see the blind spot windows in the back, where with the default headrests they are blocked for USA folks.
