You're not going to miss the VDC in normal mixed driving urban and motorway.
In any case, you prefer to keep it in Comfort mode. VDC adds anti roll stabilisation and more chassis and drive train electronics that really come into their own in spirited driving on curvy country roads and tracks in all honesty so the standard option was fine for me.
My irrational option was the LED headlamps - £1600 is stupid money for incremental improvement over the excellent xenons, more so because I wanted it because it just makes the car look the business.
Cinnamon Brown Nappa is excellent, thanks for the lovely pictures and commentary, yet not a very popular option in The UK going by my dealer research. In my opinion, The best brown BMW do is Cohiba Brown which unfortunately is an extended leather option only available on the Individual package at £5600. It is a deep tobacco brown and just stunning.
