premium package
Sport Automatic transmission with shift paddles
Power rear sunshade with rear manual side window shades
Soft-close automatic doors
Premium hi-fi system

I'd really like any opinions anyone has on the options listed. Options that you would add that I don't have, or options there that aren't worth it. Anything you didn't get that you regret? I was really on the fence with the Soft-close doors, but most reviews I find just seem to complain about closing the doors. Thanks.
Looks ok, I find soft cloors doors to be annoying. Not needed on cars with light doors.

My only comment would be to consider a color other than Space Gray. It is a nice color, but over done the past few years. Plus, Space Gray is more of a green.

I am with you on HUD, more of a toy. Had it in the past, and can live without it. I find that after having many of the options available on a 5 , I never used them because they were silly or never really worked effectively. Even the adaptive suspension when I had it in the past was only on to show off to passengers. I suspect most are the same although folks would be hard pressed to admit due to pride.
