Can't Combine Individual Composition with M-Sport Package!

Major bummer! I was in the process of configuring my 2013 535i with the newly available Individual Composition extended Merino leather, but when I then tried to select the M Sport Package, I got the following message

By adding this selection, you will also:
Remove
19" BMW Individual Light Alloy V-Spoke Wheels style 349-with performance tires
Individual Platinum Ext Lthr
Individual Door Sill Finishers
Anthracite Alcantara Headliner

In other words, BMW is forcing us to choose between Individual Composition and M Sport. You can't have both! (Adding insult to injury, you can have both Individual and M Sport on the 2013 7 series, just not on the 5 series.) Arghhh! What were the folks at BMW thinking? Why can't I have Merino leather AND the M Sport Package?

Call your CA, the configurator is not a reliable source of information.

I contacted BMW of North America and they confirmed it: you can't combine the M Sport Package and Individual Composition leather on a 5 series.

Did you ask for a quote for a special order? You can usually special order any Individual leather with any configuration. It will probably cost you $5000 for Extended Individual, and maybe $7000 for Full Individual.
