So m135i order pretty imminent,
Secured my 10% off need to order by fri.

White
Auto
Sun protection
H/k
Black panel disp

I had pro nav in my 320d will it be hard living without it?

If I drop the auto box I guess I could tick that pro nav box, worth it?

All thoughts welcome

Nav pro is a FREE and standard inclusions on all M135i's ordered from 1st of July.
You can have auto and NAV PRO - both are NO Cost standard inclusions.

Surely your dealer mentioned it?

May not be the same in the UK as in Australia, we tend to have to pay through the nose for any toys.

If your 320d was pre 2013 then the new 2013 nav is sooo much nicer. So too is the media interface for the music. But the auto is awesome as well. I'd have to have both.

+1

I think the media interface works just as well on the pro radio. A top of the range TomTom or something will give you far better nav options at 1/8 of the cost that BMW charges.
MT or AT is offcourse a very personal choice..

Surely only you can answer this question. Do you have a need for nav, do you use it all the time or is it pretty much just a pretty picture on the dash board?

I never ticked the box as I have a need for nav maybe a few times a year at the most. The rest of the time i know where I'm going.

I know pro nav gives a lot more than just the nav element but to be honest those features are not worth 1600 when you already get the standard idrive for free anyway.

Well, the M135i costs 134 000 Australian Dollars in Norway. That is with no additional options at all.

One comparative measure is GDP per capita, which for Norway is $usd85k per person, whereas in Australia it's $usd55k per person.

I'm guessing that Ove and his countrymen are all very busy during that long winter!

That too. :-)

Basically we have very high minimum wages in Norway, but few people have very high salaries. Small differences in income. It is however the opposite when it comes to car cost. The M135i is a lot more expensive then the 114i, due to all sorts of special taxes on power, pollution and so on.

End result: I have yet to see a Norwegian M135i. The volume models seem to be the 116i and the 118d. I guess the 120d X-drive can also become popular.
