Like all MB products, if you want options, you will have to pay. Some other companies have freebies (rear view camera etc), but the standard build is not as good so it's a consumer choice. Free bells and whistles or superiour build. I did like getting the Premium Package without the sunroof. Didn't want it ... didn't have to pay for it :) see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review
