2011 X5 35i no ski bag

Has any one ordered their 2011 X5 with the Cold weather package and received the ski bag?
Not sure if I am missing something here, even the Build your own states you get a ski bag. According to the manual it is behind the rear arm rest but I see NADA just hard plastic.

2011 = no sky bag. Cold weather option price dropped from $1250.00 to $900.00.

It's still on the Build your own site, with the ski-bag for $900.

So it is, when I was given my print out at deposit time it showed the Cold Weather Package contents without the ski bag. Because I live in the south it didn't become a big deal but for others I'm sure it does. I was just caught up in the fact that the price dropped.

It's not a big deal for me either but I should get what I pay for. I am going to ask my CA about it. BMW has been on a penny pinching rampage lately, I'm wondering if this is another one.

BMW has a new option package - the Bait and Switch Package - it contains the cargo cover and the ski bag for $600. Too bad you have to pay for these items a second time if you want them.

Are you sure it's not there? It should be INSIDE that hard plastic divider (the divider is a box with the bag inside) Once you remove the divider by pulling the handle, press the small black round button on it to open the box. There should be a bag tightly packed inside.

My 2011 X5 35d came with a ski bag. Canada automatically gets the cold weather package in the base product and the ski bag is still there.

Seems as this was a few weeks decision. Don't think I can do anything about it now. Not a big deal, It just doesn't seem right that I should pay the same for the cold weather package when it has less in it.
