Ordering 6WA Black Panels Display as stand alone for MY2012

Has anyone requested from the CA to special order the Extended Black Panels as a stand alone option for the MY 2012? If so were you successful? I noticed this option is offered on the UK BMW website for $115 Euro's and not having to worry about buying HUD with it.

Incorrect.

There are two black panels. Standard and extended or full. Standard is the one with just the small display screen.

Black panel also refers to the climate control as well.
