All but one of the options you listed are part of the "Nav" (i.e. Premium) package. Sure, definitely a nice car, but you can easily add another $10K worth of very common options on top of that.

power rear sunshade (incl with Premium Package)
Power seats (incl with Premium Package)
interior mirror withi compass (incl with Premium Package)
park distance rear (incl with Premium Package)
power folding dimming mirror (incl with Premium Package)
novillio leather (incl with Premium Package)
aluminum/CF trim) (incl with Premium Package)
Heated Seats $455 invoice
Some money over invoice to pay the dealer $500
gas guzzler $1300
Destination $895
That adds up to $58,579. Yes, still within your $58K number, but like I said you got the Nav package, but not much else, i.e. no Competition Package, no DCT, no 19" wheels, no DDC, no Enhanced Premium Sound, no Satellite radio, etc.

I'm very familiar with the numbers, I bought a '12 M3 coupe via Euro delivery.

My point was not to be negative, just point out that most people expect those other common features/options when they consider a "loaded" car, and obviously that's gonna add a whole lot more to the price.
