2k for the full nav is to much. Had it my last 2 e60's and loved it but going without this time helped me stay in a 330d as opposed to dropping to the 320d.

One of the easier spec decisions for me: 330d + tom tom.

Smoker's Pack for 25. I suppose they are trying to stop one from smoking and prolonging life! P-L-E-A-S-E!!!

I would of loved the ProNav just for the looks alone but the cost compared to a TT was a bit too much. I've lived without iDrive/Nav on my last car so any old screen is an upgrade for me.

+1. But I've just ordered a 320d ED ex-demonstrator fully specced including Pro Nav & Visibility package. Can't wait :-) My old E90 didn't have idrive or USB or any nice extras.

I very rarely smoke in my car but on the odd occasion my lighter has run out of fuel so it's handy to have the lighter in the car....suppose I could put a box of matches in the glove box !
Smokers Package 441 is priced at 25. Worth it for the 12v socket.
Why are people always trying to take the rise out of BMW prices?
If you cannot really afford BMW prices you might be best going over to Ford.
You get what you pay for. It might be a good idea if BMW upped their prices somewhat more just to keep the riff-raff out!

My dealer said the smokers pack just adds an ashtray next to the 12V socket. So your paying 25 for a plastic tray.

It costs way more than 25...when I buy a used car, if I see a potential new ride has smokers package I move onto the next.

Must be a F30 thing. For the F31 there is only Smokers Pack deletion @ 0.

Who's the riff-raff?

Black tyre marks everywhere in the South East, around roundabouts, on interesting corners, even straight roads, lowered suspension, souped-up OEM engines. All for speed on surburban & country roads.
Gives BMW a bad name.
Jeremy Clarkson said it all last weekend in my Sunday newspaper
"Yup, the M3 ticks all the boxed for me, but would not buy one as I do not want to give that image"
People I know, buy Audi & Merc for that reason.
BMW's are fast enough without idiots(=riff-raff) souping them up for the wrong reasons. It is different if it is for the race track but rarely is.

Hey! Careful with that axe Eugene!

You don't need a 330d to be riff-raff or an idiot. Some people (not necessarily me) might say that dressing a sheep up in wolf's clothes has more than a whiff of Chav about it. Not that I would ever say such a thing.

Anyway, enjoy your ashtray...
