LOL at 53K for a used 2008 with 22k/miles.

I bought a jet black/fox red M3 a couple months ago, and I absolutely love the color combo. And yes, for resale value, I think it will do better in the long term than some other combinations out there.
You might want to push back on the price a little bit; I bought my E93 for $59k. It's optioned almost identical to your option 1, but it's a 2010 with 14k miles, so it still has nearly 2.6 years left on the warranty. Also consider things like tires, recent maintenance, etc. If you need to immediately do any of these things, it won't be cheap.
Just my 2 cents. Keep us posted with whatever you choose, and include pics!
59k after tax that would be 54k before. Incredible deal if true!
