I'm curious why they couldn't heat the wheel despite the wood inlay. Our Denali's steering wheel is heated and has a wood inlay. The wheel doesn't heat as well as my 6er's, but it does take the chill off of the cold leather on a cold morning. I don't think many people would consider it a deal breaker, but for >$100k you'd think they could work something out...

Yeah, I found it odd that I couldn't order the individual wheel heated. It was the one option that I really couldn't decide on until the last day. But living in Texas, I decided I might as well take the risk.

The electronics in the bmw are on another level.

Here are some pics, still need to get the car tinted
Beautiful, I have only seen the individual on the website, and it's a composite, your car is literally stunning! Love the colors, is the roof anthracite in that color combo?

Stunning. We almost went Amaro/Opal but chickened out and went Black/Amaro. Would be interested to know in 6 months, 1 year how the white is holding up to dirt. That was what we were afraid of.

So now that you have the car for some time, tell us about the light interior. I have Venetian Beige in 528 and its not terribly bad to keep it clean. Stitches picked up dirt at some places, which is hard to clean though. No kids allowed in the car...maybe that's the reason. How are you keeping it clean?

I have been traveling a lot so I still only have about 400 miles on the car. So far the interior and exterior are still perfect but that really doesn't mean much yet.
