2. So should the heated front seats and alarm.

Negative. People are cheap. Even when spending $40K on a car, some people get really annoyed that a $2K navigation is more expensive and has less features than their $200 smart phone. So they refuse to pay. And BMW can't give away Nav "for free" on a $40K car, so they let people pay the premium. When you get into the $70K base price, then there is enough margin to include it for free.
