What would you change about your car if you could order it again?

Things I would keep the same:
  • Driving Assistance Package
  • Parking Assistance Package
  • Premium Package
  • Front and Rear Heated Seats
  • Adaptive M Suspension
  • Ambient Lighting
  • Wireless Charging and WiFi Hotspot
  • Harman Kardon surround sound system
Things I would not opt for that my current car has:
  • Executive Package
  • Driving Assistance Pro
Things I would opt for that my current does not have:
  • I would consider Mineral White with Black leather and blue stitching (current car is Dravit Grey with Mocha)

Makes me feel glad I skipped Executive Package and Driving Assistance Pro.

Wireless Charging seems to be getting not-so-great feedback (e.g. doesn't charge quickly, phones overheating and being ruined), and the hotspot feature is another monthly payment I don't need (never lose service on my phone so don't see the value). I'm surprised this package is $500 and not cheaper.

In the F3X, the wireless charging option included enhanced Bluetooth functions. Is that the same in the G20, or is that functionality now standard?

Can you explain why you would not have chosen Dravit Grey with Mocha? Is Mocha bad color to maintain?

Same for the G20, you need wireless charging in order to get enhanced BT.

Also the Laser Lights and the way the daytime running lights look -- you prefer the standard looking ones?

Exec pack is worth the better looking lights alone and the other crap in there is just freebies although the whole pack costs more than it's worth.

What is the difference between base and enhanced BT functionalities in G20?

I presume base BT has handsfree. But does it have Bluetooth audio?

In the F3X, enhanced BT included the ability to see text messages in the main iDrive screen. That was the important thing for me. I don't recall whether BT audio is included with base BT or whether it required enhanced BT.

Sorry, I did not mean to confuse you. I love Dravit and Mocha. It is a great color choice. I mentioned Mineral White and Black if I were to choose a different color. I am happy with my color choice. I other words, Mineral White would be my second color choice.

I like the way laser light look but they only function with high beams. You get them with the Executive Package and I don't feel the Execution Package with gesture control is worth the money. Gesture Control is like a great party trick but otherwise not necessary.

Apple Car Play works well for messages and better than then ACP in my 18' M2

What would you change about your car if you could order it again?

My only regret is the tetragon trim. I didn't get to actually see it before I ordered and I despise it. Which is unfortunate since that's what I'll see lost of the time I'm driving. Can't wait to cover it up or replace.

I’m supposed to order my car tomorrow and I am planning on getting the driver assistance pro with mine because I’m so used to radar cruise control. What is the reason you would order without it? Also what don’t you like about the executive package?

Iím not a huge fan of the tetragon trim either but Iím not sure the other choices are much better. I wish they had an option for carbon fiber trim.

It seems to need some refinement. The car tries to stay between the lines but makes way too many steering adjustments to do so. Literally makes me nauseous.
