After having read millions of posts on whether or not the Tech Package is worth it (I don't want iDrive on my future M), every single detail jphughan said is spot on.

Just one personal difference. I drove an M3 at a BMW driving school and purposely tried with and without sport servotronic steering and MDM. I don't feel I'm losing anything without the MDrive, for my wants/needs. I'm planning to keep the last naturally aspirated M3 for as long as it'll last, don't want the iDrive now and don't want the tech to look like a Commodore 64 when it's outdated.

But you'll find that 99% of the posters here (on this forum) have the Tech Pkg or Nav (post 2011.50), and most of them feel like it's a "must have".

Since you already have the M3 and don't have a choice anymore, maybe ask yourself this: Would BMW build an M3 missing an essential component to the M3? The Tech Package may very well be a very useful option, but your car is still an M3.
