Tough choice ... but i guess resale wise the nav would win out, though not sure how much of a premium you could get when it comes to selling compared thr cost up front.
no, not on the 1er.. tested a 125d w/ plenty of spec yesterday and it defo didn't have any sensors.. something i think i will really miss tbh

Thats why it comes down to how much you would actually use it and whether that use is worth the cash to you.
million dollar question, i use my nav now most weeks.. sometimes its just a press of the home button to scoot around traffic, others its making my way around central london that i don't know too well.

borrowed the girlfriends car the other month though and just used tomtom on my phone and that was perfectly good enough.. if a little ugly looking.

thing is, with the screen already being there in your face, it just begs for some nav..

gah think i just answered my own question.. but xenons look so nice and i love having parking sensors.. this car is very quickly swallowing any potential savings that i had envisioned! lol
