What is this car missing?

I'm going to be back in a Bimmer after a few year hiatus. Looking forward to soon receiving my 328. The car is loaded however there are a few European options you just can't order.
My questions to all.
What feature or option do you wish you could get?
Secondly, is this car missing any features that other brands have?

Examples: door handle covers to hide the keyhole, sun blinds.

Let me know

AC in the seats - they've got no idea how much extra I would have paid for that here in Dallas

Finally - my contribution
Full size spare with non-RFT tires!!!! - hell just giving us a place to put a full size spare under the trunk floorboard would have been good enough

Cooling seats are a pretty great idea too.

Surprised to hear this from someone in Mass. Heated seats are amazing in the winter. And the heated steering wheel? Best ... feature ... ever. This is a luxury car, so there are luxury features. Hell, I use the heated seats after a tough morning at the gym to get some heat on the lower back!

If they perfected the heating system years ago, then why are the leather seats and steering wheel freezing cold for the first 10 minutes? They didn't, hence, heated seats and steering wheel were invented.

I think we have different views on what a luxury car is. Don't think a luxury car company should have the slogan the ultimate driving machine or needs steering effort.

IMHO when someone say luxury car I think of Lexus and Mercedes Benz. Sport sedan I think of BMW and Audi

No Lane Hog Guided Missiles :/

But, the 16 speaker Harman Kardon surround sound + Navigation Professional with BMW Assist will make ownership very pleasurable indeed!
