You can get wider stance with staggered 20" wheels and wheel flares on the Luxury line. You don't need the M-Sport line to get that look.

In the grand scheme of things, I'd get it. It's just a couple dollars a month over the life of the car.

I have found the onboard system to be hard to manage sometimes, so I instead use an iPod classic with all my songs. Works much better in my opinion. Sorry I'm not of much help.

Things I have found that fit in the cubby underneath the rear trunk:
6 ton bottle jack. 4 ton is too short for rear due to air suspension. Scissor jacks do not fit.

When I bought my car, I asked for the factory tow hitch to be included. The price was $1800 with labor, so $3000 is ripping you off.

That said if it came up again, I would skip the factory option...
