Believe it or not, I've been to Hutchinson. Had a lady friend from there in the mid-'80's. Say, what town is it near there that has the space museum with the Blackbird? That was a surprise. :D

Well…. I would submit that any "accessory" requiring that BMW install it, could rightly be classed as an option… especially where it replaces a stock item. But you say tomato, I say tahmahto… :D
