Questions on Ordering an M5

Finally taking the plunge and looking to upgrade from my 7 year old F10 550i to an M5. It's been a few years since car shopping so wanted to make sure I cover all options when ordering an M5. I know when I ordered my F10 there were many options not on the BMW website. For instance back then, I read a member was able to custom order 4 zone climate control on their F10 550 when it was clearly not on the website or the ordering guide. I wish I knew that.

So here's my questions.

1) It seems from looking at photos and videos that the M5 has digital AC controls. Meaning the dials on the bottom are touch controls not actual hard button controls. I currently have a G30 loner as my F10 is in for some service issues, and that loner's AC controls have standard hard button controls for operating the fan speed etc. Can any M5 owner confirm the touch controls for the AC is standard as I don't see it listed as part of a pkg or standalone option?

2) I see in the videos folks talk about the wireless phone charging pad in the space right behind the front cupholders. Is that a standard feature or part of the executive pkg? I don't see any reference of that feature on the website or ordering guide. Do US models have this feature?

3) Is the smart remote key fob an option for the M5? I don't see it listed anywhere. I know the M550i has it as a separate option apart from the packages.

4) Is the MY2020 ordering guide available yet?

I would greatly appreciate if any M5 owners can confirm the above. I want to make certain I have all the bases covered before ordering. Thanks!

(1) Climate control is touch (Standard)
(2) Wireless Charging is part of Exec Pkg.
(3) Smart Remote Key is not available on US M5. Some other countries do have it as an option.
(4) I believe MY2019 ends in July so MY202 may be available later this month or in Aug. (Not sure)
