Annoyed by online build

Why is it missing so many options? I am trying to build a new 340, as my lease is up soon. The Track Pack is missing amongst several other items like top and side view cameras.

It's just a toy as they can't seem to keep it as solid as it used to be. My advice would be to get familiar with the latest revision of the ordering guide.

Thanks. I already ordered one, and my dealer was more than helpful with all the port installed options!

Great, congrats!

I've been all through ordering guides and online build your own over the years, but never a single port installed option. Glad the dealer was able to help. It can be tough to find a dealer who really knows much more than the bare minimum.

I'm finding the same thing. Is the M-Performance Power and Sound Package a port-installed option, and that's why it's not showing up? My build code is DINPA56Z, and I want to add the MPPSK, carbon fiber lip spoiler, and shadowline kidney grilles.

The dealer had access to all of these. Just find one that knows what he's doing and you'll be golden.

I have my 2018 on order and I can't even build it with the track pack and black grilles, makes me sad because I can't even stare at it at least once a day!

Well the performance parts are port installed options. See if your dealer can have them added when the car hits port.

And why couldn't you add the track pack??

Sorry for not being clear, I ordered M-sport Alpine White with Track pack and black grilles but the configurator doesn't have it available so it's just ridiculous that BMW isn't on top of that.

Oh... yea; It's stupid. The online build is always a mess.

My theory is that BMW is trying to balance the port installed stuff as "surprise and delight" for the CAs on factory orders for a bit of extra customization and its a big profit center for the dealers especially if the customer pays sticker for the pia as a add on. And without easy info also limiting how often they are added. Would explain why there really is no easy way to get a definitive list outside of the CA.

I just think bmw isn't able to put it up on the web. When I ordered my 335 most of it was there, but a bunch of it was misrepresented.
