After all it's OP's decision on what he actually needs and how much he's willing to spend.
That's exactly what I said in Post #4.
To complete my thought, BMW Assist with enhanced BT and USB is $650.
Tech Pkg is $3100
Nav with Enhanced BT and USB is $2800.
Huge difference between $650 and $2800 or $3100.
I'm only saying to get Enhanced BT/USB because nearly every base car I've seen at least has this option (except for service loaners). When the vast majority of cars have an option it becomes expected by those who look at used cars. If he drives the car for 4 years, he's not going to get even close to $2000 more for it because its got Nav. What will surely be outdated Nav by then.
Lets not quibble over $650. OP will decide what he needs.
