They sure can. You hand them the keys for your old ride, and they will sell you new keys for a car with that package.

I don't about where you at but here in the US, BMW don't do upgrade like this. If the dealer will do it for it's going to cost you an arm and a leg.

If you want to know if some can be done... maybe the seat. You have to source the parts yourself.

Harman Kardon sound system... too much work but you can always upgrade your stock Hi fi system with better speaker and amp.

Xenon headlight... this can be done with parts and coding.

Good luck.

Cyprus is a small island nation. It's possible that taxes and high costs make it feasible for dealerships to offer upgrade services like that. It looks like most or all of the components of the MSP package could easily be done by a dealership (HIDs, 19" wheels, special glass). HK audio might cost more than it's worth though.

Ahhh.. I was coming from the NA market where they NEVER entertain or even offer something like this.

I get why they don't, but it would be nice if you had the option post-purchase (especially on a CPO).

Reminds me of that story that broke out about Tesla. Some Tesla was being auctioned off or something and was branded with the autopilot option and was sold to a guy. Tesla then sends an update to the car removing the autopilot option as he didn't pay for it and had to pay Tesla if he wanted the autopilot option lol.

Edit: To be clear, the car WAS advertised with autopilot. I think it's extremely f***** that Tesla HELD the auction, sold the used Tesla with autopilot ADVERTISED, then rolled it back. Shame on Tesla.

The amount of money it would cost to source all the Harmon Kardon parts, your local car stereo shop could build you a better sounding car stereo for MUCH less money.

For the record, the H&K in my 2016 isn't very good. Out of the box it sounded like crap. I found a thread with some recommendations on setting the EQ which improved it slightly, but it's still bright in certain areas, dull in others, and it's highly volume dependent.

We bought a 2028 Audi with the B&O system. Side to side comparison, the H&K just sounds like junk. The peanut gallery (aka the kids) continuously comment on how my car sounds horrible to their mom's.

If H&K is one of the driving factors, just drop the idea. You're not going to be that impressed at the end of it. My 2 cents worth....

I'm thinking you could probably just do a seat swap without too much effort. All the controls are on the physical seat, only thing outside is the seat heater buttons on the dash.

Yeah not that great, but it was a relatively cheap upgrade and standard on the 6 cylinder models. Which car did you get? The HK system in the 5 series and X5 sound much better than the F30 HK system and the B&W system is very good. In the audiophile world B&O is kinda considered a style brand and B&W is considered a real audiophile brand so I'm surprised that B&O is considered such a big upgrade.

The B&O is in an Audi SQ5. I do prefer the B&W setup in my home theatre over both though.
