Approx 50% of F30s come with leatherette.
Approx 95% of the F30s and 75% of the 5 series do not come with the upgraded stereo.
I asked the CA and he said the most asked and popular option for my region is the heated seats, believe it or not. There are perhaps "nice to have" options but I dont think there are any "must have" options.
Also in my experience CA do not know what's in all of the cars to that specificity, they (like most human beings) go with their experience. If that week he drove 4 - 5 series and 2 had and 2 didn't he expanded that vision. With the exception of MT, that they all know. Just my $.02

I also think that if you looked at it 5 years ago the number of NAV systems proliferation was lower. With that in mind the commonality is going up. If you extend that to 5 years down the line (again resale value) it will be even more expected since more and more new cars will have it standard.
