Great to know! I'm on the hunt for a 4x8 trailer to haul my winter coal in a ton at a time. Gonna get some funny looks for sure pulling into a coal yard in my Alpine White X5.

Hmm i'd say If I had to pick a favorite accessory right now it'd be the heated steering wheel. Else wise, I just love everything!!

Top View Camera - Makes parking between lines effortless.
Large Sunroof - Brightens the interior.
Soft Close Doors - You get spoiled with this feature and you suddenly forget how to properly close the doors on a non-soft close car.
M Sport Pack - The thick M steering wheel and 20 " M wheels are sexy.

Sorry, I'm not sure what this is?

Thanks.

My order:
  1. top view cam - didn't know it existed until I was in the driveway parking it.
  2. ]like the iphone/BT ease of use
  3. love SAT radio
  4. seats feel great
  5. heated seats are cool
  6. iDrive knob rules
  7. voice commands
  8. keyless doors
  9. lights under door handles
  10. and of course the driving experience

BTW: I drove a 328 recently and the instrumentation was a cool white color background (for MPG, mileage, etc, etc) I believe. Is there a way to get this on the X5? The text was so crisp and easy to read...I want it!

Ventilated seats.

Sadly, they weren't an option on my 2011 e90 (despite being standard in many hyundais, options on fords and lincolns, and seemingly unavoidable in the Lexus line-up amongst other manufacturers).
