Options, NADA not showing they are worth anything?

Hi, new to the forum, but I have been researching used M3s for a few months (think I decided just to wait for 2010's to come out and spend the extra cash). My question on used ones is what are people getting in trade (on 2008s) if any of you have traded one in yet? NADA guides and KBB (seems like most US dealers go by NADA guides now) don't show options as worth anything, their site doesn't even show them as options. So a new M3 can go from $56K-$70K but these used car guides don't give you any credit for $14K worth of options? this can factor into how I build my car if I have to eat the entire cost of every upgrade I get. OR are dealers actually offering more than NADA prices because of DCT and 19 wheels and tech packages? Thanks for the help.

I plan on keeping my car for the full 4 years of coverage and it seems like history shows a 4 year old M3 with 45,000 miles to be worth 50% of the original MSRP, question is if I get a $70K M3 will I get 50% of that or 50% of a stock $56K one???

the reality is you don't know --- it all depends on market.

I.e. a sunroof is a 1000 option but in 10-15 years when the enthusiasts are looking for the car, the ones WITHOUT sunroofs might be 1000+ more.

Auto trans was an option on my 323, but it made the car harder to sell.
