Man! It's becoming more and more harder to skip the Tech pkg....But I guess I'm still not so much of a fan for the Tech stuff....

* the Nav system is not the best and it is easier to upgrade your Tom/Tom or Garmin when it dies.
* MDM mode is not the most important; whether you drive it with DSC or not (if you are a good driver).
* On the other hand the EDC, Servotronic and Power controls could be more useful if you plan on going on a track from time to time, but again, not key for everyday use.

- also, are the folding seats still an option on the e90? I would recommend you get that if you want to load skis or something in your car someday.

My 2 cents.
i am getting the "speed cloth". It's a cloth and leather combo. I've also heard that the BMW nav is not all that. The rear folding seats may not come of any use to me. The alarm I feel may come useful.

Maybe...but the Alarm lets me know that my M3 is secure.

BTW, awesome color choice! I have yet to see an Interlagos Blue in person!
Thanks Man!

i would get an 08 if i were you; you arent looking for lots of options, you seem price-conscious, and i dont know if you are really fussy, but i see no reason in ordering unless i know exactly what i want to the tee.
Same here. i think the 18"s are seriously under-rated. I'm choosing to order since it'll let me have it exactly the way I would like it
