What is the Premium Package?

I saw a 2010 535i today. It had the Value package with leather, but not the Premium package.

What am I giving up by not having the PP? Just dimming mirrors and garage door opener, or something else?

Robert A,

According to my 2010 5 Series brochure, PP on the 535i consists of:

- Dakota leather
- 4-way lumbar support for front seats
- Integrated garage-door opener
- Auto dimming interior rear-view mirror & power folding exterior side view mirrors.

Brochure does not mention anything about Value package. But on my window sticker, I have a Value Package which consists of iPod/USB adapter, Nav & HD radio. This was a no charge option on the 2010 550i.

Hope this help.

Car has leather, and I think it also has the 4-way lumbar by virtue of M-Sport package.

So, basically dimming mirrors and GDO aren't there.

I ordered a 2010...The Value Package gave you the leather and the iPod/ USB adapter, HD radio for free. For 2010, since the value package gave you the leather for free the Premium package was only a $750 option. The mirrors, garage door opener are what is listed on the widow sticker for the premium package but I do believe the interior ambient lighting is part of the premium package as well. These are the interior lights that give off a subtle orange glow.

Can't help you directly since no Value packages or Premium packages were on 2010 Canadian models.

However, the Executive Edition package included the following:
- Universal Remote Control- Comfort Seats Front- Park Distance Control- USB Audio Integration- BMW On-Board Navigation- Voice Recognition- SIRIUS Satellite Radio Tuner- BMW Individual Audio System

It might have the 14 way comfort seats - which are part of the sports package.

my beef about BMW, GDO is not standard option on >$60k car??? disgrace.
That;s why I always buy PP, cause I am done with remote on the sun-visor thing and for safety when parking outside my house (in case someone break-into the car and steal my GDO).
