I agree. I can see that BMW is going in direction of option packages to bring down the cost and complexity of manufacturing process, but in the case of high-beam assist i really think they should kept it as a standalone option for US.

Another thing that I see getting worse: There is an increase in the number of options that are are connected to (require) other options. For instance, why should Harman Kardon sound system require addition of Live Cockpit Professional that costs almost €3.000 in EU. And there is much more of this once you go into driving assistant systems.

Yup! We sometimes lose site of the fact that "our beloved" BMW is a business, and a business to make MONEY.
