BMW USA appears to be correct.

According to the official ordering guide (which you can download here:, the Technology Package does *not* require ordering the Premium Package.

When one package requires ordering another package (e.g. Driver Assistance Plus requires ordering Driver Assistance), they indicate it on the ordering guide (e.g. "ZDB requires ordering ZDA"). They don't list anything for the Technology Package.

As far as the M Sport Package goes, there may be a technical reason but probably not.

Perhaps you should go with a standard 535 so you can get the M Sport. Are there features on the AH5 you want that you can't get on the 535, such as 4-zone? Or do you just want the hybrid-ness?
