Your words have been marked in my book. Make good on them.

a) it allows BMW to lower the base price and thus attract more possible customers.
b) given how much the car costs in countries such as the UK (over $100k US if I'm not mistaken) I think it'd be hard for them to justify the price without a lot of nice standard equipment.
I think its the opposite, we wont get the standard stuff on the EU edition. This allows lower pricing here and forces us to buy those options which will raise prices. If pricing was 56K for a M3 with leather seats, metallic paint, and Navi. BMW would lose so much money...these options is what helps them bring in revenue. Just compare a base RS4 to any base BMW. The difference in options is enormous.
