Default driver assistance package

was about to order a7 - prestige/havana black

found one at nearby dealer that also has
driver assistance package/ winter package/ LED headlamps
to the tune of 4500 extra $ msrp

does anyone have the assistance package and think it is "worth it"
know i could do without the rear seat heaters
also LED headlamps -- "worth-it"???

thanks

I have an A6 with both - and think they are very much "worth it." ACC is remarkable if you drive rush hour traffic (as I do, 5 days a week). Along with the driver assistance package comes Audi pre-sense basic and plus, and the ability to know what is in that blind spot is literally, "priceless." I love the LED's - both when lit, and when not!

I have innovation package which includes LED and Driver Assistance. The LED lights are great and with my mostly city driving the benefits are questionable. However, the side assist built into the mirrors is fantastic. I don't think I'm buying another car without it

I love the leds and side assist. Don't really know whether heated rear seats are that important unless you often have people sitting in the back.

Never mind the rear seats, the heated steering wheel is fantastic.

It sounds like your steering wheel heats up more than mine. Currently, mine does not heat up enough to be of much use.

Adaptive cruise is my least used option of the bunch if I was ordering.

The full LEDs and side assist as stand alone options under 2 grand total is probably what I would do.

But if your spending 70k....73 ain't much of a stretch.

Side assist is the greatest thing since sliced bread and one of my favorite options. I'll never buy another car without it.
