It doesn't take a genius to figure out why they do it. Look at how many people trade in their cars after 2-4 years just to have to newest and 'best' out there. Ever since the E46, it has always been incandescent bulbs for the first few years, then LED's for the LCI.

If BMW came straight out with the LED's, people would feel less compelled to go back and get the newest thing.

I have to agree though, that it is a bit ridiculous to not have LED tails on ALL cars $40k and up. If it is going to be marketed as a luxury car (which all BMW's are), then it should have LED tails and xenons as a minimum standard.
Especially when the M235 has rear LED for probably 20k less to start.
