Ambient Air package

Is the X7 in fact being produced with the Ambient Air package? i.e. the BMW system for "air fragrances" from various scent cartridges and ionization. The X7 owner's manual does reference it, but the Ambient Air package isn't referenced in the X7 standard feature list, nor available options.

Wondering whether ionization can be used without fragnances?

Cool. Not an overwhelming thing, but neat to know it's in there. Just another available feature, and something I would expect, actually, for a 7-level BMW.

Looks like the answer is yes. On the very next page of the owner's manual, it indicates that ionization and "fragrancing" are controlled separately. Can set the fragrance output to 0, but still use ionization, which would be very useful.

Looking around, it seems some people find the fragrance useful, and at varying levels. Some think it's a waste.

My CA sent me the retail pricing guide last October and I built the X7 from that and the Ambient Air Package was listed. Still haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else and the dealership didn't know it was available until I told them.

My X7 is due to hit Oxnard, CA on the 27th and hopefully a week later San Diego.

Thanks for clarifying! I personally dont like the fragnances at all, ionizatoon however a big plus and i think its especially useful with the kids being more sensitive to air con.

You'll be one of the fortunate ones, then. If you don't use the fragrances, and don't care when the cartridges run out, you won't have to replace them. $44 a pop, and if they're only lasting a month or two each time, that starts getting really pricey, on top of all the new subscriptions you can pay for (i.e. Apple CarPlay, Sat Radio, Wifi Hotspot, etc) when their trials run out.
