I thought I read somewhere that this is now part of the Tech Package and that the tech package MSRP is now different from what is showing up on BMW Config (currently $3,000 US).

Does anyone know?

thanks!

This is another area where there has been confusion.

First, the price list inthe thread Complete Model Year 2014 Pricing Info Here Now! is not up-to-date. There were changes in March. That did the following:

Tech Package (ZTP) $3150 includes:
  • 609 Navigation System
    • 6AK BMW Online
    • 6AM Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information (ARTTI)
    • 6AP Remote Services
    • 6NR BMW Apps
    • 6NS Enhanced USB and Bluetooth plus Smartphone Integration
  • 610 Head-up Display
Navigation System (609) $2150. Choosing 609 automatically adds the following options to the order at no additional charge:
  • 6AK BMW Online
  • 6AM Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information (ARTTI)
  • 6AP Remote Services
  • 6NR BMW Apps
  • 6NS Enhanced USB and Bluetooth plus Smartphone Integration
For awhile (between about 6 Mar and the beginning of April), the automatic of 6NS added $500 to the order when included with Nav (609), but nothing when automatically included as part of the Tech Package (ZTP).

I asked my dealer to check if that was a pricing mistake because BMW was forcing me to get the 6NS and essentially increasing the cost of the Nav from $2150 to $2650. If they are going to force features on em, I said, then they ought to call it a Navigation Package. When I re-ordered by MY14 X3 on Friday (4/5/13), the cost of 6NS when combined with Nav was $0.

So as of now, the sole difference between the Nav System (609) @ $2150 MSRP and Tech Pkg (ZTP) @ $3150 MSRP is the HUD (610).

There is the possibility that even though my sales guy told me BMWNA made a mistake in the pricing, they are just tossing in 6NS at no charge just for me because I complained. I have not seen all this on an official BMWNA price list yet. Just what I am getting on my deal for my car this week.

Last year (2013) Option 609 was just the Nav without the added options and was $2150. Each of those other sub-options were priced extra. More value in the 2014 bundling.

Get your saleperson to show you the current price list and option bundling rules. These can and will change throughout the year.
