2. Is the B&O sound upgrade worth it over the Premium Sound?
First of all, welcome!
There are still some limitations, like Carbon Black and Imola Red are exclusive to the M Sport, but they will now allow you to combine Individual exterior colors (and interior as well - separately) with the M Sport. There was no way to combine any portion of Individual with the M Sport Package for 2012 models. Also, you can't get Black Sapphire and a few other colors with M Sport - weird restrictions, but I've become accustomed to this with BMW these days.
Premium Sound is a really good system. I do, however, regret passing up the B&O. The source of my regret is the fact that I passed up a cool, good-looking toy that adds another level of exclusivity to the 6er. The sound is noticeably better as well. That being said, they didn't make Premium worse to make B&O sound better - B&O is just that good. I'd add it in a heartbeat if I could build my car again. I guess your question was "Is it worth it?
." The answer is pretty subjective, but I think so as it is a small price to pay for what it adds to the entire experience of the car.
Hope this helps.
