Interesting Note on US vs. German Pricing...

Recently price has been a hot topic here. A lot comparisons have been made against other countries. In light of that, I thought I would post some interesting info regarding the additional standard equipment that the US gets as opposed to Germany and the pricing on those options (including VAT)...

490 - Adjustable Seat (Width & Lumbar) - 700 Euros
4AE - Adjustable Front Armrest - 150 Euros
524 - Adaptive Light Control - 450 Euros
563 - Ambient Light Package - 250 Euros
663 - Radio BMW Professional - 210 Euros
676 - Hi-fi Sound System - 570 Euros
760 - Shadowline Trim - 520 Euros

Total = 2850 Euros

All other equipment listed as standard on US spec cars is presumably either included in German vehicles at no cost or is not available in German vehicles.

I don't beleive this info has been posted before in this particular format, if so, I apologize.

Well, we all have plenty to complain about to be honest. Consider this:

It "appears" the base audio system for the US Spec M3 is the same as the 328 base, 10 spkr system with analog amp which SUCKS compared to Logic 7 or Individul Audio. To get the upgrade audio you MUST have NAV or TECH package. I would never order NAV instead of the TECH PKG. That being said, for me to upgrade the audio, I MUST spend roughly $4,500 USD...

Individual interior options NOT AVAILABLE here. SO... we are STUCK with complete crap unless you like Fox Red which I know some do. Black, Silver or Tan leather otherwise and all very ho-hum crap normal colors for this level of car.

Those gripes will possibly go away when I get behind the wheel...I hope. Thanks for nothing BMW. Instead of driving my "dream car" inside and out, I will have to just hope the powertrain and suspension make up for all the cosmetic let-downs!
Crying is for babies, little girls, men who have just had their ears ripped off, and men who have toasted MDCT's due to service errors.
