Thought about but didn't go for it
2N9 - 20" wheels
-- expensive (but pretty)
2VA - adaptive drive
-- a fair chunk of extra cash - didn't see the value
319 - universal remote control for garage doors etc
-- didn't see the point really
320 - No model inscription
-- so I'm buying a M550d and no one gets to see what a pimp ride it is ? C'mon!
323 - soft-close doors
-- gimmick
3AC - towbar
-- didn't need it
402 - sunroof
-- didn't see the point - in previous cars i've never really used a sunroof all that much
418 - luggage space organising kit thingy
-- didn't see much of a point - maybe i'll regret that one
441 - smoker ashtray
-- no one is smoking in this car!
455 - massage seats
-- might have been tempted if it was cheaper
496 - heated rear seats
-- i didn't have heated seats when i was a kid, so there.
4M8 - rear reading lights
-- wouldn't often use
4U1 - ceramic iDrive knob
-- what's this good for?
4UY - snowboard bag
-- got one already
536 - "Standheizung"
-- not for what it costs...
5AC - high-beam assistant
-- would hardly use it. anyway, I can do that myself!
5AD - lane-departure warning
-- if you need this, then you shouldn't be driving
5AL - active protection
-- donno what this would be good for
601 - TV
-- wouldn't use it
654 - DAB+ tuner
-- thought about it - can always retrofit if need be
696 - DVD changer
-- wouldn't use it - music etc will be on our phones mostly. or on the builtin hard drive
6FH - rear entertainment system
-- a couple of iPads would be cheaper
6UK - night vision
-- seems a bit of a gimmick
761 - tinted rear windows
-- didn't like the look, went for the blinds instead
