2013 750Li: No Digital Display - Free M Sport Pack?

I have a 750Li on order for delivery in November. Does anybody have info on a report that the digital display (Speedometer/Tachometer) will not be installed on the US version until 2013. Also is the M Sport pack free if added? If this is true and BMW is trying to cover for its mishap then this is a big giant FAIL

I have noticed that the majority of 2013's on cars.com have the msport package so I assume it's free and imo it sucks because the msport package should be a bit more exclusive.

Correct the 2013 7 NA version doesn't have the digital display.

You can retrofit the digital display, one of our Russian friends did it and it cost him under $2000.

Thank you for the replies.

The BMWUSA website confirms that M Sport pack is free. If one clicks on it it adds it to the list as you are building the car and then underneath it credits it.

As for the digital display all evidence leads to no display for the US version. If this is the case then BMW should at least release to all dealers information of this and display a note on their website. Letting potential buyers, as one builds their 7, that one of their selling points of the vehicle will not be installed!

This to me, at least, is a major f?!$ up.

They should also plan to refit the vehicles that have been ordered or delivered with the new cluster when the US version is released.
