I have scanned through my copy of the US E60 option list. Here is a quick summary.

You can find the JPEGs of the order guide here on Das' E60 site:

530i Sport Package:
-18" Start Spoke (Styling 123, 545i's 18" wheel is styling 124) cast alloy wheels and Performance run-flat tires

- Active Steering
- Active Roll Stabilization

Alpine White
Jet Black
Mystic Blue Metallic
Orient Blue Metallic
Copper Metallic (delayed availability)
Amethyst Gray Metallic
Olivin Green Metallic
Oxford Green Metallic
Titanium Silver Metallic
Silver Gray Metallic
Titanium Gray Metallic
Black Sapphire Metallic

Premium Packages (option Code: OZPP):
- Dakota leather upholstery and door trim
- 4-way power lumbar support for fornt seats
- Integrate 3-button Universal garage0door opener
- Poplar Grain wood trim
[all these are standard on 545i except the power lumbar support]

Sport Package (option code: OZSP), standard on 545i 6-speed:
- 525i: 17" star spoke wheels style 122 run flats
- 530i: 18" star spoke wheels style 123 run flats
- 545i: 18"x8 front, 18" x 9 rear star spoke wheels style 124 run flats (standard on 6-speed)
- 12-way power front sport seats with power adjustable thigh support
- Active Roll Stabilization
- Sport suspension calibration
- Active Steering with Servotronic power assist
- Shadowline exterior trim (this could be the only visual difference, but I dont' know what it is)

Premium Sound Package (option code: OPSP):
- Logic 7 sound system with 13 speakers, surround sound, digital sound processing, two subwoofers
- 6-disc CD changer mounted in glove compartment

Cold Weather Package (option OZCW):
- 3-stage Heated front seats
- 3-stage Heated rear seats (optional)
- Heated steering wheel
- high-pressure headlight cleaning system

545i 6-speed is pretty much fully loaded, except the following options (also optional for other models):
- HUD (requires Navigation)
- Navigation
- Active Cruise Control (ACC)
- Park Distance Control (front and rear) with graphic display
- Power rear-window sunshade and manual rear side-window sunshades with 2 shade sections per door
- 4-way power lumbar support for front seats
- split-folding lockable rear seats and ski bag
- 20-way power multi-function Comfort front seats
- Cold Weather Package (Heated front seats, steerign wheel, high-pressure headlight cleaning system)
- Heated rear seats (requires cold weather package)
- Rear-seat side-impact airbags
- Premium Sound Package

Other random info:
- Xenon Apaptive Headlights with dynamic auto-leveling is not part of any package, optional for 525i and 530i, standard on 545i and 545i 6-speed.
- Space-saver wheel and tire spare included.
- There is no mention of aerodynamic kit option for 545i. So expect 545i to look the same as the 520i and 530i, with the exception of the wheels.
- SMG requires Sport Package; available as of 9/03 production on 530i and 545i 6-speed; TBD on 525i.
- Performance run-flat combination wheel-tire system and Flat Tire Warning (stright from the guide): These self-supporting tires on special wheel rims can travel up to 90 miles at 50 mph with a puncture. The Flat Tire Warning uses the DSC wheel-speed sensors to recognize when tire pressure drops by 30% or more, then triggers a pressure-loss indication in the instrument cluster, and issues and audible warning.
- 2-setting memory system for driver's seat, side-view mirrors, and steering wheel position
- 3 power outlets: front passenger footwell, rear of center console, trunk

Hope this helps.

EDIT: added run-flat tires info, memory system, power outlets, added link the JPEG on Das' site.

Thanks a lot for getting this together, Litster. Looks like I'll be holding out for a while for the Professional Navigation with 8.8-in that I think about it, that may be your only choice for nav in the US, since it says "date of availability to be determined"...since Business Navigation is available now in other markets, that implies they may not be even offering Business in the US market at all and are likely waiting to offer Professional (but might not call it by that name if it's the only option).

I agree, only the professional navigation will be available in the US. I want to get the HUD as well. I guess I will have to wait a bit.

I have photo copies of the rest of the order guide. But the quality is not very good. I will go back to it again later and post some more interesting info (e.g., there is a chart on active steering). If anyone has any question about the guide or the option list, post it here I will try to find the answer from the guide.

Man, stole the order guide from Das' site...

Oh, well, that site did collect and put up some content for people interested in E60. I would be really, really mad if they have ads on the site. Some credit to Das' site would have been nice.
