I don't think you're going to want all that for a $60k 3 series.

Only mandatory option is sports package.

If it has all the options you want, and you can afford it, then get it. Good luck!

How about a new, nearly stripped M3?

I keep saying it...335 owners should own the car...not a car and $15,000 in overpriced and overhyped options. But I might be biased.

don't listen to him ^

sounds great, as long as you can swing the 60K. I got mine fully loaded and never regretted it. Alpine White with Red/Black Interior looks amazing.

If you do have the urge to eliminate some options to reduce price, these are the ones I have found to be the least needed:

Active Steering
Active Cruise Control
Automatic High Beams
Power Rear Sunshade

When posting a message, go advanced and click on the little icon that looks like 2 mountains, that will let you upload images.

Wow. I just can't justify paying over $60K (after tax) for a 335! Everyone has there reasons, but I would definitely rather go with a slightly used M3 for that price. I saw a CPO 2008 e92 M3 at a well know dealearship with only 13K miles going for $49.6K. IMO, that's the way to go.

Or you could opt out on some of those options listed. Personally, I love the color combo you are choosing, but would only choose these options to cut cost:
1. ZSP
2. ZPP
3. iDrive
4. Logic 7
5. 6MT

But hey, we don't know your financial status. If you are set on the 335 with automatic transmission and have the $$$, then by all means, go for it fully loaded.

Do NOT get active steering--unless you plan on your car being a long-distance tourer (GT-style car).
It tends to kill transient handling and adds understeer, if I recall correctly.

It does help with high-speed stability though. Again if I recall correctly.

Also, if you get the Nav, you probably don't need the iPod integration--you'll have a hard drive that you can upload lots of your music to. Your choice.

Even with it featured out the way you want, you should be able to go well under MSRP. I know AMEX for instance has an auto purchase program where you can build your car and it shows you a "guaranteed" price as a card member that is somewhere in between that and invoice (closer to invoice) so that you don't need to haggle. Sometimes you can do better though if you haggle, though not always, since they like to move stock ahead of orders, and you want a pretty specific car.

That said, drop whatever options you don't feel you'll use much, and if you can afford it, great. If not, decide if you want to drop more options or do something else. It's a rough choice, but it's a personal thing, and for the most part I don't know how much help we can be on this. If you aren't sure if you'll really use an option then if you search there are usually threads asking for people opinions on things, for instance I've seen a few for active steering and such.

Sport package and premium package.

Premium package isn't needed either unless you have to have real leather.

Id hate to not have premium package. Sports package is necessary, but like I said, its your car and your money. Do what you want as long as its in your means. No regrets.

It is pretty simple. Go to a dealership and look at one.
