535d M Sport - Specification?

Hi all, here's the spec we're looking at for a 535d M Sport.

Is there anything really missing off here that you would suggest? Maybe loudspeaker hifi?

BMW 535d M Sport (F10)

Azurite Black
Black Dakota Leather
Dark Ash-grain wood, high-gloss 355.00
Ext. mirrors - folding, auto dimming 250.00
Windscreen with grey shade band 60.00
M rear spoiler 190.00
Exterior trim, matt aluminium - 0.00
Through-loading ski bag - 75.00
Xenon headlights - 920.00
Headlight wash - 215.00
Sport automatic transmission - 110.00

Many thanks

I'd add the following

1. Visibility Pack instead of just Xenons - the Adaptive headlights and high beam assistant work really well

2. Reversing camera - rear visibility for parking is bad and the camera makes life much easier

3. Professional Nav Package

4. DAB radio

5. Folding Rear Seats - boot is big but narrow and adds to the practicality of the car

Agree on visibility pack, love high beam assist. Also would recommend sunroof, anthracite headlining can feel claustrophobic but the glass sunroof opens everything up. Heated rear seats, kids love these.

Having a top-of-the-range 535d without professional nav would make it unsellable later on, it's a must on any 5 never mind the range topper (where it should be standard).

Agree with the visibility pack too, it's brilliant.

Visibility pack and split fold seats sound great. Less keen on pro nav as the car will be on Contract Hire we won't have to worry about selling it on and it seems very expensive for what it is. What about electric and heated front seats?

The pro nav is so much more than just nav and without it you get ugly plastic fillers to make the small screen fit in the space that the 10.2" pro screen occupies. You also get split screen, HDD media uploads, DVD etc. etc. As you say, you don't have to worry about resale but it makes the cabin a much more nicer place to be.

Electric and heated front seats are standard.

Agree with all the above, except that I'd put AD/VDC at No.1. Next to the amazing dual turbo engine/sport auto drivetrain, I consider it to be the car's best feature and it's the one I use most of all.
I'm also very glad that I went for the comfort seats, expensive I know, but worth every penny on long journeys.
