Merino leather is around $5K last I checked in 2016. That's strictly for the standard merino offerings and not custom orders. Ironically it's $4k for the 4-series coupe.

Oh, I forgot to mention one other thing. That's a beautiful interior btw. Enjoy it. Not many 3 or 4 series owners get to enjoy merino leather here in the U.S. :thumbup: :)

It appears that the price differential may reflect the fact that the F36 never got the top of the door panels in leather. So an F36 XT1 option does not have nappa leather at the top of the door...

Coupe and convertible, yes.

I agree with that combo but would add an H&R rear anti-sway bar to that list.

There is no "inability" to get VSS.

Why wrong? A little levity to lighten things up is always good. This forum (and others) can be too serious at times.
