The 2010 BMW ordering guides for all the U.S models have been released to the dealerships. Those of you that live in the U.S., I’m sure you’ve been expecting these for a while, as far as our other readers across the globe, I know it’s not directly relevant to you, but you can at least take a peek and see what options are offered here in the U.S. compared to your country.
Some of the big changes in the MY2010 models are related to the entry level 3 Series in the U.S.: 328. These 2010 models will NOT include the moonroof anymore which can be purchased as a stand alone option for $1,000. It is also part of the Premium Package. This is good news for some people that were looking to shave off some pound of their cars(yes, plenty of us are crazy enough to do that), but it can also be disappointing for those of you that enjoy having a moonroof as a standard feature.
For the 328i Sedan and xDrive models, there is a new package available, ZVP Value Package, which includes Leather Dakota, 17 inch wheels with all-season tires and iPod/USB adapter. The ZMP M Sport Package is available on all the 3 Series models, excluding the 335d.
The 535i xDrive Sports Wagon also has a ZVP Value Package which includes even more options: Heated Steering Wheel, Ski Bag, Heated Front Seats, Retractable Headlight Washers, iPod/USB adapter and Leather Dakota. Could this be the last year for the Sports Wagon in the U.S.?
The pricing on the 328i Sedan and Coupe has also been dropped by $750 while the 335i models keep the same pricing structure as last year.
These are just some of the things that popped up in front of our eyes, but feel free to scan through the 53 page BMW ordering guides for 2010.
