Final options!

After reading the forum, I have decided to ditch the following options for my new 120d M-sport:

Driver/C Pack
Sport auto/ changed it for the standard auto

And added the visibility pack.

Think I have made the right choice! But I think the vis pack is worth it.

Options List 101


Absolute Must Haves for safety, comfort and strong residuals
Auto transmission
Driver Comfort Pack (cruise control, servotronic power assist, Rear PDC)
Visibility Pack (xenons, LED corona DRL and rear lights, cornering function, headlamp assist, rain/light sensors)
DAB radio
Bluetooth and Telephone USB connectivity
Sliding armrest in ES models

Highly Recommended
Professional Media and SatNav
Front PDC
Electric wing mirrors, reverse dipping and anti glare
Sunroof
Sun protection pack (cheaper than Independant dealer fit)

Can reduce insurance premiums in UK by upto 25% in UK from 2013
City Collision Avoidance system
Lane Assist
Blind Spot Sensor

Suits some folks very well if you can spare the cash
Reverse camera
Park Assist
Comfort Access
Extended Storage
Extended Lighting
Head Up Display
Harmon Kardon audio upgrade

Absolute Waste of Money
Night Vision and Pedestrian Recognition
Internet / Apps / BMW Live
TV function
Grey shade band on windscreen as standalone option

Future Proof your car: rubbish today but will be important in a few years with bmw upgrades
DAB radio
Voice Control
Connected Drive Apps

Deliberately avoiding comment on exterior colours, models, wheels, interior trims and seat upholstery as hey are very personal: one man's fruit is another's poison though we all know BMW crs re often sensitive to th right spec.

I agree with most of that, but would delete auto transmission and sliding armrest. I would also put extended storage and lighting on highly recommended.

... the 8 speed auto is simply superb! I've had both the manual and now the auto - and with the paddles on the steering wheel too for those wild sport+ moments ;-)

General consensus appears to be that the Driver Comfort Pack will be de rigeur and key to keeping good residuals at the end of 3 years.

I would also suggest you think about the sun protection pack which gives you factory-fitted 3-window tinted glass and grey shade on windshield for 250 which is actually on par or cheaper than after-market fitting. Missed this one myself.

Think about DAB if the changeover happens in 2-3 years, you'll be caught out with clunky aftermarket fits.
