Default Q5 "must have" options

I realize this is going to be very subjective, but that's OK. I just wanted to query this forum to get some idea of people's priorities/wants, etc.

If you had to identify just one single option that you just had to have on your Q5, something that would have been an immediate deal breaker if it was missing, what would it be?

Everything is fair game... performance, appearance, technology, etc.

1. A2DP Bluetooth - streaming audio
2. Backup camera

20 inch wheels anything smaller just looks bad

SLine+ Package (AKA: Black Optics). I would not have made my purchase without it. The stock Q5 has far too much chrome (for me, anyway).

For me the panoramic sunroof and ventilated seats are two things that are wow items when our family sits in the car.

Backup camera is a must from a safety feature. I love the B&O stereo but am on the fence if I would buy that again.

The Sport Package. The round steering wheel hub is so much better looking and the sport seats are a nice cross between comfort and support. I think this option is a better value than any other available options.

The unavailable "Top-chrome handles deletion" option.

+1 for the panoramic sunroof. It keeps my 3 year old occupied identifying animals in the clouds above her.

(It really is one of my favorite features and another would be the higher Rez MMI vs the crappy ones I have seen in the loaner vehicles when I'm getting my scheduled maintenance)
