Adding some 10-15 different performance parts, for a complete model line (example: 314, 316, 318, 320, 325, 328, 335 al have the same performance parts) , to the inventory of thousands of parts, doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

Integrating it into a factory production line, that's something else.

But if other manufacturers can let you choose between different seats (comfort / sport) at order, why can't BMW ?
