IMO, either the 3.0 or Si would give you more than enough handling and thrills for street driving, return good mileage and be comfortable and livable for everyday driving.
This is exactly why I choice my Z4 3.0i car..... the Z4M was way to powerful and overpriced IMHO, the 3.0si ones I tried were not much better than the Z4, although a bit more power, but harsher ride. I wanted a DD. Plus the Z4 I did buy was a 2006 with only 4000 miles on it...hard to pass up a car that was showroom condition.

I'd concur that based on the individual reasons any of the three options would serve the buyer well.
