DAB digital radio 315
Well worth it for the extra stations.

Loudspeaker system, Business/Professional 415/715
You get 12 speakers and a digital amplifier with the Business loudspeaker upgrade - worth having if you like your music and if you like it loud, the extra for the 16-speaker 600 watt system is tempting. If you're indifferent to sounds, the 5's standard system is fine.

TV function 870
Only functions when car is at rest, and there's no dual screen as with Jaguar XJ to allow passenger-only viewing. Only with Professional sat-nav, too.

Rear-seat entertainment 1635 Business, 2090 Professional
Possibly the price of harmony if you have kids. Two eight-inch screens (9.2-inch Professional) with DVD drive, MP3 and games interfaces. Professional allows navigation for back-seat drivers. Pricey.
