I agree with what Swamp said about getting out the door at only $54k. Plus the EDC is a great technology that really gives the M3 depth as far as usability and versatility. Would you really want to miss out on that?
However, swamp are you sure about the damper's using oil? I was under the impression that the EDC used the Delphi magnetic dampers. Which would explain how they have variable stiffness that can be changed while driving. This system is also on the Ferrari 599 GTB. It uses iron shavings inside the dampers (shocks) along with current that magnetises the damper. More current would equal a stiffer ride.
