Red face Difference in LT, LTC, LTE

I hate showing my ignorance, but what is the difference between a LT, LTC, LTE. I Really don't have a clue. And I can"t seem to pick up on it on this site. Also as far as i can see BMW mfg does not mention the LTC, or the LTE.
If anybody on this site knows, I sure would appreciate a response.

Its buried in the archives, but here's the summary:

In the U.S. market, the LT was introduced in three trim levels S, I, and C (standard, icon, and custom). IIRC, S had black trim, I has S stuff + heated seats and trip computer, C had I+ all chrome trim bits and CD changer.

Eventually the S was dropped, and the E added (originally "Elite", until Honda objected, then "Exodus"). The E is nothing more than a C, with dealer-installed GPS and Intercom, and bag liners, IIRC.

The different models are no more. The '05s are all one trim, with a menu of options. They are all LT's. The only difference being the fact that the blue ones are the fastest

Mark, I am not so sure about the blue ones being the fastest. My clear one is pretty quick!

I dunno about that either, Mark. I seem to remember passing a blue one on the way back from Mt. Evans. Of course, I was pushing it a bit down the side of that mountain.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Good thing I wasn't Also a good thing the LT doesn't have doors -- you would have blown mine off!

Sorry, blue, clear not a chance. It has been shown in several multicenter, double blinded, placebo controlled trials that black, not grey, but black is truly the fasted color. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Adversity builds character.
