I sense most opt the other way around.

On UK roads and surface can be quite poor in areas. Around Maidenhead there are quite a few speed humbs + pot holes etc. I like the look of the 18" and 19" wheels, but I've just stuck to the standard 17".
How BMW can justify the wheel upgrade costs are beyond me- but its standard for most car makers to make on extras.
I opted for the Pro-Nav, which is very expensive- but at least I use the large screen and extra features every time I drive.
I will endevour to try a VDC fitted car, if I stay with BMW beyond the current X3.
