Bottom line: Standard radio os mediocre. If you really like your music you might not be happy.
Problem is the HK is $875, which I would have paid but you also need to buy the CA option to get it which basically doubles the price which I wouldn't pay.
For me, it was only $875 - since I already ordered the other packages. But the dealer told me that HK is worth only if I was a music connoisseur, which I am not. Anyhow, it's too late now. Am still looking forward to my first ever BMW.
