I guess if you plan to parallel park for a living, the PDC option is nice to have, but haven't you gotten by without this gadget until now? I also think navigation system is another gadget that BMW is not too good at. I have read reviews about the 5- and 7-Series navigation systems as being overly complex and difficult to use. Since you are leasing, it is not important, but you would not be recovering much of this $1900 investment in resale value.
I think the sand gloss trim makes for a boring combination with the sand seats and door panels. I know you are getting a sport package car and purists hate wood trim on a proper sports car, but I think adding this option will really do wonders for your interior. This $500 option is one of the better values BMW is offering as far as options go. At least take a look at both gloss and wood trims in a sand interior.
