2015 AW 650GC Msport On order

Moving from a 2011 AW 550i Msport to this one.
The only color change is the red interior. Hope I don't regret it but I like the combo.
Piano Black and 373 Wheels, and Cold weather and Enhanced USB package. Passed on the X drive again..
Plan to spend next winter in warmer Climes!

What do you guys think?

Also does any one know what the enhanced USB package is?. This is on the list of options for the 2015 Models.

funny, I went from a 2011 550i M sport to a 2014 650i xdrive Msport. Love the new car, the xdrive with all seson tires is proving very helpful for me lately. The exhaust is awesome!

Looks good. Should be a nice contrast with the white exterior and red upholstery.

Also, my dealer told me the enhanced USB is for bluetooth audio streaming. Why that feature isn't standard on a 100k luxury car is beyond me.

I had an alpine white exterior with the two tone oyster/black interior. Was skeptical when I first ordered b/c leather almost looked white but I am the only one who drove it and it kept pretty clean over the past few years. My 650i x drive, although I am not crazy about the black sapphire exterior ( it is nice and my daily driver and hard to keep clean ) the vermillion red interior with the poplar wood grain sold me on the car. The alcantara headline didn't hurt either. Absolutely love the interior

The white ext and red/int is the best color combo imho. Have this combo on my other car. I see you are in NY, hope you got the 19" wheels and all season tires!!

Funny that is the exact color combo of my 550i . It lasted well enough although I can see some color shift towards gray on the seems drivers side. The red will fair better. One issue I was worried is that red dyes on leather may fade a little over time. The sapphire and red was my second option....

Surprised with the 19s all season. Mine seem to be holding up pretty good.
