640xi on order - Bang & Olufen included with Exec Package?

Hi Everyone:

I have a 2014 640xi GC on order, which has just entered production. When the production specs showed up on the BMW OWnes's it showed the Bang & Olufsen Sound System listed under the Executive Package. I did not order the B&O sound system, which I thought was a $3700 seperate option. So, this is either:

a. An error on the BMW site?
b. B&O system actually does come with the executive package?
c. Error from my dealer (although I did check the order sheet and it was not on there)?

Any insight as to what's going on?

Here's how the specs are listed on the BMW Owner's Site:

Fine Line Oak Wood Trim
Instrument panel with leather finish

Cold Weather Package
•Heated rear seats
•Heated Steering Wheel
•BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel

Executive Package
•Concierge Services
•Soft-close automatic doors
•4-zone automatic climate control
•Head-up Display
•Premium hi-fi system
•Bang & Olufsen Sound System <-------------********
•Multi-contour seats
•Front ventilated seats

That's got to be a mistake.

Mine showed up the same way on the BMW tracking website. When I took delivery, the configuration was correct (no B&O).

You can ask your dealer for the build config - if it matches what you expect, you're fine.

Answer is a.
Same happened to me.
No B&O but the site error gave me a tiny thrill too.

Just another day in the life of the quirky BMW customer facing order tracking website. They love to mess with you. And oh, make sure at delivery that they prove to you removal of the suspension spacers which are there to protect the car suspension during shipment. Mine were left on and there was NO give in the suspension over bumps...it was horrible. Went back to return the car..they told me there was a "mistake" at Pre Delivery Inspection where the plastic spacers are to be removed!

Maybe it's just me, but I think that B&O system is amazing - front center speaker comes up out of the dash to play - sound is also amazing. For guys like me that buy late-model used (usually) it is the options that end up selling an otherwise proper car over another with less options... I would be calling dealer to confirm that it WILL be there.... In any case, great car that I am sure you will enjoy! I met you all halfway by putting 2010 features in my 2007 - the CIC retrofit...

Haha, oh well, wishful thinking. This is my 5th BMW so I am well familiar with the fantastic options BMW gives us to track these orders, so no real surprise here.

Thanks, everyone, for your help!
