Angry What is the ONE Item You Think You Should Get FREE on your F3X, but don't?

I think cars in this range should come standard/free with Folding Side-View Mirrors!! My Brother's 2007 CRV has 'em!

Xenon headlights on the roughly three quarters of 3ers sold that are not 335s and a rear view camera.

Xenon's. I know they are an option on 328's and standard on the 335's, but the absolutely pitiful performance of the stock halogen lights is unacceptable on a BMW, regardless of which model or how much it costs.

What's free or standard depends on markets and their pricing. I'm happy with the standard features of my car, but somewhat surprised that HUD was an extra when it is standard on the F10.

Xenons on 328i and Rear View Camera--no excuse whatsoever at this price to exclude these items. LED's should be optional, but at $900.00 and not a penny more.

Then again, we all pay the prices and buy the cars anyway, now don't we? So, why should they include such items when we pay for them willingly? I, too, am guilty of this. I guess I should blame myself.

Thank you. I'm aware of that. I edited my post to avoid confusion.

LED Front and Rear lights should be standard with the technology package or premium etc. There shouldn't be an extra charge. C'mon BMW, even Kia/Hyunda have them now. However, its not a deal breaker for me

Metallic Paint and Bluetooth should be standard on a 35K$ car.

More of that about oil dipstick and full size spare tire but that's another story.

xenon head lights only because my 12 year old infiniti had them as STANDARD. My 6 year old audi also has them standard and so does my toyota highlander. The most expensive car i have, the bmw, is my only car without xenons....

Backup camera is standard on all Honda cars and will be required by law on all new cars sold in the US in 2016.

Spare tire. Not having one in the US is absurd.
