Looking for opinions on Order

I'm putting together an order for an X3 35i and am on the fence on a few issues. Thought I'd post and solicit input from the peanut gallery.

Color: Carbon Black or Alpine White (not sure which looks better with M package)
Interior: Leaning toward black (hide dirt from kids and pets)
Fineline Wave (brushed metal??)
Cold Weather Package (might just order heated front seats and save $450)
Driver Assistance package (regular, not the "plus")
Dynamic Handling package
M package
Premium Package
Technology package


1 Given that I will have carbon/black or white/black, what are your thoughts on brushed aluminum trim? My initial reaction is I don't like the look of the metal against the darker interior (a little too noticeable for my tastes). Thoughts?

2. I'm not sure what the difference is between shadowline and satin trim? What about the roof rails?

3. I'm considering adding premium audio. Is it worth it?

4. Is there any point to getting the accessory phone cradle or is that now obsolete with Bluetooth?

5. If I order now (October production), will the car have SIRI eyes free and other updated features?

I recognize much of the above is subjective. Feel free to share your opinions.
