Yes but people want these luxury features. For 60K people want to show they have a top performing, but also gadget-full car.
I don't think it is that BMW wants to add useless luxury, they are innovating suspension tuning from in the car and providing the buyer what they want - it is all supply and demand. there is only so much demand BMW can drum up for the bare-bones raw street race car.
