Yea generally as the Model ages more items that were initially sold as options/packages are included as standard. At least that is what I have always observed. While BMW USA (in case of USA) may make these determinations, probably someone in Germany has to give the thumbs up I'd imagine. Regardless, one benefit of waiting a few years for a new model is that you will invariably get more for your money in terms of options and packages. Many will be included as standard, and the packages you do pay for will be more robust and include more.
