Yep... VLF used to be a little over 1% a year until it was reduced to the current .65% in 2011. So there's that.

So for $64 more a month I can...

I agree it is ridiculous you can't get ventilated seats in a 3-series when even a Honda Accord has them. I suspect BMW is trying to push you into a 5-series.
