However, if you don't have an M button you definitely DON'T have the Tech Package. If you DO have an M button you either have the Tech Package (since that was the only way to get it when that package existed) or you have a car produced 9/2010 or later, when it became standard.

The Tech Package included EDC, Nav, Comfort Access, and M Drive (most easily identified by the M button). The problem is that all of the other 3 things could be ordered standalone -- still can except for CA, which is now exclusively available with the Convenience Package, but CA will once again also be available as a standalone option for 2012. There's already a sticky about MY2012 changes in this forum so I won't bother with the rest of the details.
Thanks for the clarification, guess I'll just have to manually set my settings.
