There is no market for the F11 in the US, no reason for them to bring it over. Heck, even the E91 is a rare sight. I suspect the 3er touring days are limited as well.

Why no sound system upgrade? I think at the minimum, the Hi-Fi Speaker system (676) should do. Can't imagine how lifeless the base 6-speaker system sounds. Oh wait, I do know how it sounds- it's awful on the X5!

I think that the rear manual sunshades (417) are a nice touch for keeping the sun out, and not prohibitively expensive at 250. But just my 0,02.

Standheizung is very popular in Germany; is it really that useful? I know it can be remotely activated; does it use engine residual heat to pre-warm the cabin?
