Nearly half the price when you include the options. But that's not the fault of the US buyers (and this situation will evolve soon). I think, when you buy something of that price, even when you buy it half of the price, you get the right to complain when you're not happy.

I think however that some components of the cars should be designed "plug and play". The iDrive would be a good example of this: you don't want to buy a new car because your iDrive is outdated, do you ? Maybe you don't need it initially but would like to add it at a later stage ?
Actually, our cars are becoming less and less plug and play ? Can you change the radio in a 3 to put one of another brand instead ? I'm not sure.
