Essential: Sport Package, Bi-Xenons

Desirable: Premium Package, Nav

Cool but unnecessary: Cold Weather Package

I think the only truly ESSENTIAL option is sport pkg.

If it's my car it's gotta have heated seats & sunroof.

Mine has PP, but if I had to do it again, I'd pass -- don't need the headlight washers or auto-dimming mirror...

i agree with plaz. SP and xenons. but i'd be backward on the others. i'd take the CWP (heated seats, mmmmmm. nothing better than a crisp nov morning drive through some twisties with windows open and heated seats on) over the PP....

I agree with Plaz, Sports package and the Xenons.
03 Nav system should be cool with the DVD.

I would add the rodent protection system as an option.

It IS offered here ...

Patrick

Funny you should mention that. They had an M5 with about 3000 miles on it at the dealer with a service engine soon light on. The codes came up for a fuel leak, what one usually gets when the fuel cap is loose. Lo and behold, there was a fuel vapor line that had a chunk of it eaten by a rodent. They had a tech taking the car apart for two days to find it. In the end, it was a very pricey rodent problem! (~ $1000)

BTW- Sorry to hijack the thread. To bring it back on topic, I'll add my advice.

Must have: SP

Very highly recommended: Xenons, Moonroof (I can't drive a car without one...), Leather (unless you are on a tight budget...), Heated Seats (if you live somewhere that even occasionally gets cold weather...)

Cool toys for people with extra money to blow: Nav, PDC (I think its foolish, but then again some people need all the help they can get when driving :bigpimp: )

IMHO, the essential options would be:

1) Undercarriage neon and rear Altezza lights

2) Exhaust canister with the opening the size of a basketball

3) Numerous "Type R" and "VTEC" stickers plastered all over and last but not least,

4) A big triple decker wing reminiscent of the Red Baron's Fokker Triplane.

(Oh crap, wrong board.....) :lmao: :lmao:

My 2001 BMW parts catalog does not have the part number listed, but this is what it says in the price book:

"Your BMW Dealer will be happy to provide you with advice on suitable rodent protection for your car."

3) CWP or Heated seats
4) Xenon's
5) Nav
6) PDC
7) Metallic Paint
