Both builds give you all that you really need...everything else is really truly unnecessary luxury. I mean who needs White Ash wood for $1080? It looks interesting (read weird) and I think it is a first in a US BMW. And the frozen Bronze is def hot, but $3500? And the the Individual composition full leather for $5k is too much me thinks.
I agree you can get one for 90K, but its like this, if you're spending 90K, then you gotta get what you want the way you want it, and does another 10K really matter at that point?? so id want a unique color both in and out, and after having the full leather on the M6 with the dash and everything else in leather, you really want that in this type of vehicle, it just brings the car to a whole new level inside. Id also get the premium sound and the multicontour seats, and on and on..Im thinking that unless you order your own, many on the floor available will be highly specced, and though i wouldnt go for the full indi package, the piano black is so nice inside, as is the tanzanite blue outside that you'd want to get it this way since you can. Its still strange that they dont have any transmission options, i cant see this as a MT

I def see this as a MT, rumors say the M6 version will only have the DCT.

I like the special options like the leather dash and such, but it only becomes obviously nicer when compared to another without it. I had leather dash in my E39 M5 and forgot about it most of the time. Me personally would never buy one of these brand new. I think they are overpriced. I typically wait for someone else to take the huge initial depreciation. Part of the fun is educating myself on the nicer special options and finding a highly specced one at a bargain. You'll be surprised how many people are oblivious to BMW's special paints and interiors.
