I think the sport auto is standard on the 550i. The OP should check. It would be option 2TB.

The pics I've seen of 4M5 special order on the 5 series look great.

Leather dash is $1180, MSRP, on my MONRONEY - had my car re-delivered Saturday!

I agree, a definite step up in a 5-series interior. I think the dash may be the low point. And you went with the Mocha Nappa. We really want a lighter color, but the Individual interior would make it an $84k 530d without the leather dash!

What about the Alcantara headliner? It should be about the same price, 1176 normally, or 857, not including the VAT (1400 or 1020 with the VAT). I think it is black only or in individual colors platinum, champagne, silk gray. The black is code 776.

I see the black grill on the accessories list.

But what is the performance exhaust? What is Santorini blue and why was it worth $5k?

Sounds like an amazing car though.

Santorini blue is the exterior paint color. You can order specialized colors from the factory (like getting a M3 only color on a 5 series, etc), obviously at a hefty price tag.

M Performance exhaust is fitted at the port and is amazing, sounds fantastic on start-up!
As for the unique paint, I figured the price was acceptable for a one of a kind F10 with as much presence as an M5.

The Santorini paint, leather dash and exhaust along with a 6 spd make this a uniquely appealing ride.

I fully agree that you worked the option list well. My wife is a blue fan (she wants Estoril) but loved the pick of your car (but the not price of the paint). I agree with the leather dash. The black Nappa is no longer available.

I don't see the performance exhaust on any option list or on the German accessory list (the black grille is there though). . Where did you find it?

I like your color and your philosophy, just don't share it with the M5 guys.

BMW came back today and said they could only do the dash in extended merino leather. That requires individual and that rules out M sport. Sorry for the false alarm, but I was far enough along that all seemed good! Not going to sweat it at this point...

That shouldn't be correct. The German price list says:

Quote:
BMW Individual leather-covered dashboard
Leather-covered instrument panel top in black nappa
Only in conjunction with leather Dakota, Exclusive Nappa leather or
BMW Individual extended Merino leather trim in fine-grain
or

Quote:
BMW Individual Instrumententafel lederbezogen
Instrumententafel Oberteil lederbezogen in Walknappa schwarz
Nur in Verbindung mit Leder Dakota, Exklusivleder Nappa oder
BMW Individual erweiterte Lederausstattung Merino Feinnarbe
That is a July 2013 price list with the 2014 colors and lines.

Your wife has good taste.
Ask your dealer it's available to order, he'll know how.
