Save yourself a ton of money
Ok. "Do it" but I shall add my two sense where it will come from.
History: I just bought myself a 2011 e92 ZCP from the states. Saved nearly $20k and have a beautiful ride. I privatley sold my e93 335i first and put my money towards the M3. Yes, I lost my %15 HST on the private sale but going south saved me much more. So what I'm suggesting is go for it. Upgrade to the 2011 and get the upgraded idrive/ZCP. It's night and day.
fyi, I'm from Halifax and may be right out to lunch on this.
