I would say:

HUD
Sunroof
Logic 7 sound system
PDC

Would not spend my money on navigation, I know where to go anyway...
Would not spend on other seats than the standard stuff which is really great!

Well I don`t have an M5 but I would say the full leather. Although very expensive, looks really nice. Apart from that

- HUD
- Logic 7 (Since it`s one of the best OEM stereos around)

Professional Nav is certainly standard in the UK but an essential option to go with it is the TV function.

Yeah UK cars have HUD, Glass Sunroof and PDC as standard - the extras list is only about 12 items long if i recall correctly - stuff like audio/media upgrades mostly! Think the only options i'll be adding are TV reception at a rather hefty £700 and the tinted windows at something like £300.

Cheers,
David.

Being in Switzerland the ski sack is important (I ordered it) :2: , Logic 7 & CD changer are a must if you like music , sunroof, PDC and Navigation Professional.

They have one available at the dealership in geneva, I'm thinking of trading my X5 4.6 IS for the M5, considering that I have another 4X4 ML 55. The M5 is sapphire black metallic + black leather, It has nav prof. sunroof, multi function seats, pdc, (logic 7 i think), not sure about the HUD, car's battery was dead. It looks very nice in black. You can't appreciate this car without seeing it with your own eyes.

Go ahead and get that beauty new M5. Not sure why you want to trade your X5 hmmm when you can sell your Merc. One service for both cars, easyer on maintenance, and X5 is much better than ML from my point of view.

It's much better you're absolutely right. I'm replacing this ML with the new model, so I'm keeping it for the moment, other than that, it has a very beautiful interior which cost a fortune.

Well when you spend a fortune on interior and on many other tuning things it always makes uncomfortable feeling and one sad day when you want to sell it because you never get what you invested :sad1:
