535i Individual

With the demise of the 535i Sport Pack cars, besides M sport, are we left to build the 535i Individual in order to get a dark headliner, 19 inch wheels?

Would this individual package be worth it on a 535i considering the resale value is a little better on the I6 verses v8? 5800 is a lot of cash to spend, but at the end of the day, it might be very unique. Even for a 3 year lease.

Are there any REAL life pictures of the individual wheels? I think they could compliment the orginal look of the car...

The M Sport package has the dark (Anthracite) headliner, and the 19" style 351M-wheels.

Hi Sharon... Do you have pictures of the individual. I do realize the m sport has those two features. More of a fan of the original bumpers opposed to the m sport.

This is a MAJOR feature on the 2013 5 series and NO ONE has an opinion... very strange that this is the case over here as we love to talk about options.

And again, no one cares the non m sport, sport wheel is GONE? Threw a huge wrench in the ordering scheme i think...

$5800 is a lot of change, but you do get a lot for the money. Extended merino leather is an expensive option on the other models that offer it. Individual trim is worth $1080 if you want it or zero if you're just as happy with standard trim. The headliner isn't just black, it's alcantara. I saw a photo the other day and it is much different from the normal black headliner.

Like you I prefer the look of the standard bumper, and the individual wheels look very good with this bumper. Here's a clip that shows the wheels on an individual touring:



The clip also shows satin aluminum exterior trim which isn't available in the US without individual.

I've been considering ordering individual on my car, but I don't expect it to help the car's resale value. Buyers who like this sort of thing usually want a new car.

If you are buying it for the resale value, it won't make much of a difference.

After a few years, it doesn't really matter.

Seems like an expensive option. Would rather be able to select sport seats, sport wheel and sport steering wheel a la cart. Just not a fan of M sport at all.

honestly most people dont really care; as most people think that M sport looks better. your in the minority. and you can get comfort seats (sport seats) as a stand alone option. if the other stuff really still bother you, get the M sport package and swap out the body kit for a regular one with somebody else. i'm sure there are many people that would love to have the M-sport look and will trade you for their non-M-sport

Honestly, its the rear bumper to me that doesn't look finished. On the M5, they keep the same color and honestly i think if it was painted the same color or a dull plastic, it would be better than the gray paint.

But good idea. And I am not in the minority overall. the m sport isnt the majority of sales FYI... just a small portion. Perhaps on this forum, its the minority since people love sport packs!
