UK brochure not so sure I will buy now

     Featured on
Just read UK brochure and I am a bit disappointed. There appears to be no flexibility on trim options, in UK called standard loft lodge and suite. Suite comes with leather but only one colour. Standard, Loft and lodge also offer no flexibility you just get the colour it comes with. They want to charge £2000 for the suite trim which is basically leather with a bit of trendy wood on the dash- you must be joking BMW!! £1000/1500 for loft and lodge cloth trim!!

Never owned an electric car before bur BMW wants to charge £530 for the heat pump which I would have thought was a must! £560 for rapid DC charging! 20 inch wheel option £1080 and better 19 inch £680, prof Nav with Bluetooth over £1000

This soon gets to be a very expensive city car

Having second thoughts on buying. Seeing it in the. Flesh tonight maybe that will sway me

I guess that some of the options are so expensive to compensate the relatively low base price. Yes, the interieur styling trims seem to be expensive. In Germany you also have to add the "comfort package" (another 1990 EUR) if you want one of these trims.

560 for quick charging seems fair to me. (1590 EUR in Germany!)
