I ordered an X3 with the following options, is there something that is a must that I'm missing, I believe I still have a few days to change the order.

X3 35i
- Carbon Black
- Aluminum trim
- Black Nevada Leather
- M - Sport (high gloss rails)
- Dynamic Handling Package
- Premium Package
- Drivers Assist (with top view camera)
- Tech Package
- Premium Stereo

I think its going to look very sporty.

Very nice. We got our white 35i a week ago. Most folks here prefer the wood. We got the aluminum as well. I was torn with the premium stero and ended up with the stock.

Will look great!

It is better than any radio I have had in a Honda/Toyota. Not saying the premium isn't great but I'm satisfied in comparison to other cars I have had. At almost a grand it is 30% the cost of the M package so I would have gone a different direction first. But to answer you.....,,.it is very good in my opinion.

I agree the "stock" radio is very good. I wouldn't pay the $8-900 for the upgraded radio considering I can't even blast the music with a new born in the back seat most of the time.

Make sense to me, We just ordered a VERY similar config. Being a Californian, you don't care about bun warmers whereas we do. I'm the taste maven in the house and had a hard time picking the interior trim. There may be "better" answers, but both woods and the aluminum are good options. Your own taste should prevail.

Enjoy! Race you to production?!

We're in Tampa and we use the "bum" Warmers all the time. First option she ordered.

My 2008 had premium sound, my 2013 doesn't. There is a difference in audio quality- most apparent in the extreme low range and upper range. If I was special ordering a car, I would most definitely include the upgrade. In this case, I couldn't overlook a great deal on a car because it didn't have premium audio.

I will say that the connectivity options for smart phones is amazing on the current standard system- I have an iPhone 5 and love splitting the screen between nav. and music info including album art.
