options are they worth it

Do you think that the following options are worth an extra $5K - you cannot separate them either they must be purchased as a pack
[*]bi zennons[*]head up display[*]auto tail gate[*]hi beam assist

Any thoughts comments etc welcome

all are pretty nice options just not sure if they are worth $5k
Honestly if it was me I would get them or else I would regret not getting them a few months down the line...

High beam assist and HUD will be something you can enjoy and amaze people with everytime you take a new person for a ride in the 1er!

Bi-Xenons and Auto Tailgate are pretty much a must on an X5 in my opinion. Bi-Xenons are usually $2k on it's own and Auto Tailgate $1500. So pretty good deal for $5000. My 0.000002c

Garage List
I testdrove an X6 with those options. HUD is brilliant, particularly because it tells you what the speed limit is as well as what speed you are going.

And the auto tailgate is a great party trick. I would take it.

My LCI X5 xdrive40d is being delivered next week and I pretty much ordered nearly all of the options.

HUD sold me as I'm a gadget nut - wish I had it in the M3. I've had bi-xenons on a few BMWs and I reckon they're brighter than the standard lights. Hi-Beam Assist doesn't really get a work out if you live in the city or burbs as there is enough ambient lighting from street lights. Auto tail gate is good for school runs cos then you don't have to get out to open the tail for the kids - especially if it's raining!

Auto tailgate is so nice to have. I had to order the entertainment package to get it in my MDX...my dogs don't really like to watch movies, but at least they can get in and out easily.

The bi-xenons are a must have in my opinion, the HUD would be great too. $5K? It's only money....
