I know that in '09 they did the LCI change, which added the LED tail lights and the new iDrive (so I am ruling out '08s in my search because i want the upgraded NAV), but since then what have they added besides the BMW Apps and the auto high beams?
The E93 M3 LCI changes were done in MY2011 (production 03/10). The BMW Apps feature was introduced on 03/11.
To me it just seems like BMW has just re-arranged the packages. I just want to make sure there is not some stand out feature that I can't live without if I buy a preowned M3 rather than a brand new one. I pretty much want it loaded out but can live with out Facebook in my car and the high beams changing themselves.
There are more changes -nothing radical but changes nonetheless- than just the rearranging of the packages. It all depends on what it is important to you.
I may suggest a little more searching from your part so you can have all the information needed before making your decision.
