And as if that wasn't enough, there is no business pack for 335i (Business pack is a cheap way to get xenons, blue tooth, PDC (back only), cruise control and folding backseats at about 950 €), so you have to pay the high premium for each and every thing separately, plus anything else your hart desires.
And to add insult to the injury, all the optional extras cost more for the 335i, as even the optional equipment is taxed by the emissions.
Well dude what can I say, that's Finland. Just like in France which I know too well, you're paying a huge premium for everything, due to your government ever growing need for funds in order to keep your social safety net afloat. It's a trade off. Can't have it all. Prices may be cheaper in the US but this has a cost somewhere else. Everything is connected.
