2012 F10 - nav credit and seat questions

First of all, I just stumbled onto this place - what a fantastic site for current and prospective BMW owners (I'm the latter). To a guy who likes to do his homework before making any purchase, this site is a dream come true.

Any guesses as to whether the nav credit will be carried over to the 2012 F10? Not knowing about that and the 2012 residuals is really messing with my decision to go with a 2011 or not.

Also, it appears the 2012 version does not offer a ventilated, multi-contour seat option as is offered on the 2011. Am I reading that right?

Ventilated seats are in luxury seat package. I have no ideas on credit for nav.

Duh, I got it backwards. That package does not offer the multi-contour seat like it does on the 2011. So, in order to get the same seat that is offered in the ventilated seat package on the 2011, I would need to get the LSP package and add the multi-contour seat option. Yikes, makes it a much more expensive proposition.

I haven't re-checked the specs, but I'm pretty sure the luxury seating package includes multi-contour seats. Ventilation, massage, etc is not available with the standard seats.

I faced the same dilema on Saturday and decided to go with the for sure thing...the 2011 model. I was told not to rely on the option credit, low apr and discount off list for the 2012.

Correct.

Multi contour seats come either with sport package, m sport package, or Lux seating package.

No real change from 2011 other than the AVS package added a couple of more items.
