At least you don't need to regret not having electric seats. They are overpriced, and the standard ones are just as fast and easy to adjust

Only thing I wish I had included is the black panel display, though not the end of the world.

Sat nav is a nice to have but it's a waste of money as usually know where I'm going. HK would have been more useful, though as listen to speech radio mostly couldn't justify, opted instead for the auto box which I use daily and the visibility pack as the most distinctive aspect to the car

If I had the dosh, I would have added:
- Electric Seats
- Navi Pro + Apps
- Adaptive Suspension
- Rear-View Camera

Yes, I know, I like my gadgets!

6WA Extended info display (Black Panel) is a no cost option if you picked 609 Navi Pro

to be honest, I also thought the Aux connection in my E87 sounded ok. I think if I had opted for HK then I would upgrade to the better USB connection.

I will buy myself a Y cable which I have seen for 13 and put it to the test. If the sound is that bad, I will put my music on a USB and play it through that.

the Nav system seemed an expensive option...I have pretty good maps on both an iPhone and an iPad, plus I have a Garmin somewhere...
...so any nab system would have really been wasted on me.

I didn't spec my car, took a pre-specced one in stock which matched pretty much everything I knew about and wanted at the time (except that I was going to buy a 116i but this one was a 118i).

After having been on these forums for a while though, I think I would have loved:

- HK audio
- Full black panel display
