While BMW is known to nickel and dime buyers for almost everything, the 840i is well equipped with luxury features like leather upholstery and soft-close automatic doors. The leather-wrapped steering wheel, 14-way power front seats, and armrests are all heated, as are the power-folding side mirrors. Also standard are remote start, keyless entry, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Buyers must first choose between the standard Sport Design or the $4,850 M Sport Design that adds an aerodynamic kit, shadowline exterior trim, multi-function seats with greater adjustability, and a sporty steering wheel.
As one would expect with a luxury car, seating surfaces can be upgraded to premium Merino leather, and standalone options range from glass control interfaces ($650) to infrared night vision ($2,300).
The full suite of active safety features requires the $500 Driving Assistance Package 2 and the $1,700 Driving Assistance Professional Package. If buyers want to add ventilation to the front seats and heating to the back seats, they have to tick the box for the Comfort Seating Package ($1,900).
