It comes with the seat cushion. I am not sure if it is embeded in the cushion or BMW just insists on selling them together. As far as I am concerned, even if it is embeded, I can take it out and throw the cushion away. I can then have a upholstry shop install the OC3 in the Performance Seat, but will that solve the problem, that is the question?
I don't see why not, this has been done numerous times on prior e46 models. Let us know your results when completed.
