Need some suggestion on the order.

I have ordered a x5 Diesel.
still have few days to finalize the options before production.
My X5 xDrive35d
Driver Assistance Plus$1,900
Driver Assistance Package$1,400
ACC Stop & Go + Active Driving Assistant$1,200
Lighting Package$1,900
Luxury Seating Package$1,700
Mocha Interior Design Package$1,950
Premium Package$2,700
Aluminum running boards$400
Harman Kardon surround sound system$875
Total at $72100

Is there anything else i should add to the order?

i am thinking about the Luxury Line and Dynamic Damper Control + rear axle air suspension
but together they cost $3200 which is way too expensive.

please give me some suggestions

order...

I too have ordered one and it still has a few weeks to go in production mode.

I dont think anyone can advise you because the options are your preference and taste. Personally, I would never buy a BMW with chrome trim instead go for the M Sport package which makes it sporty. BUT that's my taste.

Most packages I found were useful to some and redundant to others. Eg. I have the surround view in my 12 X5d which I never use so I decided to drop it from the 14X5d, but I am sure someone else would make use of it. I instead opted for the driver assistance package which gives the heads up display and rear view camera (which I think is a must!)

If you have the $$$, go for as many options, it makes the car cooler

Good luck!

I agree with previous post, you need to decide what you like and you don't. Most of my my decisions for options were based on my previous F10 config which was fully loaded cars for 2011. However, I made some choices after I read feedbacks from this forum therefore sharing my thoughts hoping that it can be useful to anyone.

You configuration is almost the same what I got: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=762127

My original config was no line, but I didn't like the 18" wheels and upgraded to luxury line.
I got spare tire, because I am planning eventually to get rid of my run flats and put non run flats tires in.
Rear side window shades. I had them in my previous car and like them. It is not an expensive option.
I have LED lights, but I can't say they are really brighter than xenons. If you are not planning to code it to intelligent headlights I advise you to stay with xenons.
Aluminum running boards. I recommend to ask dealer to get in and out of the cars with and without it.

Spare tire is a steal at factory prices. I always check that box so the run flats can be ditched, or so you can drive if the run flats die too far from somewhere they can be serviced.

I agree with the other poster on the running boards, but probably less of an issue in California than they are in Minnesota where you get salt all over your pants.

They way is see the the driver assistance plus is not very usefully unless you are doing a lot of highway driving. Also the ACC stop and Go is not usefully unless you do a lot of highway driving. I also personally strongly dislike the chrome window liner and the roof bars. So the M package was a must for me which makes the car look really nice.

I would make sure you like the running boards before you buy those. I have an X-line and deleted the running boards because I disliked them so much.

I personally like ACC and use it a lot. But some people say they don't find useful.

What do you mean by use it a lot? isn't this always on? monitoring the road condition and adjusting the shocks?

ACC is the Active Cruise Control; you apparently are thinking of the DHP (Dynamic Handling Package).

I also use ACC all the time. In fact, it's my number one favorite feature of the X5. Just got back from a 1500 mile road trip and it was fantastic. Use it on the freeways as well as in thick traffic. I also use it constantly in the town where I live.
