After that I noticed the packages changed up some and the same with stand alone options - some examples are Comfort keyless access is only found in the premium package, trim options are now stand alone for $500.00 instead of included with the premium package, and some other changes.
But what's odd to me is the Premium package for 2013 is only 250 more than 2014 yet 2014 lost dimming mirrors, trim pieces, ambiance lighting, univ garage door opener, storage package. The only piece it gained was satellite radio subscription for 1 year which moved out of the premium radio package of 2013 (which was $75 more than just premium sound in 2014).
Don't try to make sense out of BMW marketing decisions about packages and options
