X3 20d ordered

After comparing it with Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI, Lexus RX270, and Mercedes ML300 W164, finally we decided to get the X3 Xdrive 20d.
The RX270 is bigger and has more features, but it feels like just another expensive Toyota.
The M-class is priced very similar to the X3 mainly because it is about to be replaced very soon. GLK is not offered here, so there is no direct competitor from Mercedes.
BMW is the only one who has diesel offering. Audi only available with the 2.0 petrol, weird since they have diesel on the Q7.
The downside, as with any other brands here, I can't really fully customized the car like you guys. All we can customize is exterior color and leather color. Can't even customize the exterior/interior trim. For the X3, there are 2 packages; business and executive.
Here's my order details and the options that came with the executive package

- Sapphire black exterior
- Nevada black interior with contrast stitching
- Black exterior trim
- Satin silver interior trim
- Bi-xenon headlights
- Electrical folding exterior mirror, automatic anti-dazzle function
- Panoramic glass roof
- Electrical seat adjustment with memory
- Lighting package
- Interior rearview mirror with anti-dazzle function
- Radio BMW professional (not navigation)
- BMW HiFi Loudspeaker system, 12 loudspeakers, digital power amplifier 205 watts
- Bluetooth handsfree facility

Options that can't be ordered and I'd love to have:
- Navigation: sales said no maps available for the navigation, hence it is not offered here. It is disappointing since brands like Toyota, Nissan are starting to offer Navigation with their vehicles.
- Automatic tailgate: nice to have, but i guess not really necessary. The Audi has it, but no panoramic roof.

Now the wait begins..
