I got this quote from an official BMW Media Information pdf file (pg. 16; 1st paragraph) somewhere on this forum. If you guys/gals can't find it then I'll look when I get home later tonight since I'm about to leave the house.
"The sporting, “basic” trim is a combination of cloth and leather called “Speed”. Newly developed, fully tanned Novillo leather then comes as an option offering a particularly smooth and velvety surface in elegant and sporting style."
That's why I was asking if that was a typo or am I mis-reading it. I mean, I knew BMW charges an arm & a leg for every option but I don't think they'd charge $950 just for additional SAME leather on the:
- Lower half backrest insert of front seats
- full insert area of bottom seat cushion
- rear seat inserts &
- door panels
I was on the fence between black leather and speed cloth. In the end I save $950 and that settled it, that and I like the stripes down the middle of the seat.
