2009 - Few Options Worse Than None?

Hey all, I've been watching the market for the right (used) M3 to come along.

I've found what I think is a good deal on a 2009 E92 in AW/Black.

However, the car only has the following options:

Leather Seats
DCT
iPod connectivity

While I'd rather have the premium and tech packages, I can certainly live without them if the deal is right. But, I'm really thinking that a few years down the road, no one is going to want to buy a car that doesn't at least have some sort of bluetooth connection, a universal garage door opener, or maybe even navigation.

They want $52,000 and the vehicle has right about 10,000 miles.

What do you guys think? Should I save some money keep looking for an 08 with the options I want (See DCT... hard to find in an 08 ) or go for an 09 and spend a little more? I'm just afraid of having something so barebones it doesn't have a market, but with enough options that someone wanting a track car will look it over.

Thanks for your input!

if i could do it over again, i would not get most of the options i have.

some days i think that simpler is better and can lead to less problems.

IMO:the more important options.
-bluetooth (cell phone laws and convenience)
-DCT (traffic, possibly quicker/easier track times)
-Ipod (music storage/playback standard)

added benefits like nav, heated seats, digital compass, etc.. people can learn to live w/o and add weight, for those who really care about weight.

BTW, ive been looking for someone to sell my 08 DCT to (loaded - extended leather, headlamp washers)

Yeah I agree with the nav, etc... and I agree with the bluetooth... and this car doesn't have it

Feel free to PM me the info on your vehicle I'm not looking to take over a lease, but you did mention selling outright?

I'd go for that lightly optioned M3.....But that's just me.

If you do decide, try for $50k OTD.
