What the others say is true in the US is also true for the UK. Pretty much everything is an extra on the bike when it's bought from BMW. Pannier rails, rear luggage racks, bags... not to mention the cost of buying liner bags to go inside the luggage!
It is pretty good quality though. Goes on quick, sits securely, holds quite a lot. And there are different size lids available too, which either give you a slimline look (good for zipping through traffic), or enough room to pack most of a dead walrus (don't ask how I know this).
Good luck on e-bay!
