For the new model or the E9x?

They have some different named packages for the new ones. This kind of outlines them:

Search "BMW M3 2008 Ordering Guide", then 2009, and so on. Some model years have multiple ordering guide revisions as new options became available within the model year; the most significant example is 2011, because 2011.5 changed things quite a bit. But that you should get a good sense of what's what.

Premium 2 was created because prior to Premium 2, power seats were standard. In 2011.5, manual seats became the standard as a weight-saving option, so power seats were added to the new Premium 2 package. Then for 2012, the original "Premium Package" name returned even though it now contained a ton more stuff because the features from the Convenience Package were rolled into it.

If you'll be buying suspension upgrades, you're better off WITHOUT the Comp package because it includes EDC (which is also available standalone). But I don't know of an aftermarket suspension that will perform the way EDC does, so if you want EDC, you'll need to get it with the car rather than trying to replicate it aftermarket.

You're missing the Tech Package (offered until 2011.5 at which point it was replaced by Convenience and Comp) and the Cold Weather Package.
