As you're buying used, I think it's between the Si and M, which offer more bang for the buck since the price differences aren't as large as when new. For a sunny day fun car that you plan to keep a few years, I'd recommend the 3.0si.

Yes, the Z4M is faster, has better steering feedback, and looks more aggressive. It's also more expensive to run in terms of fuel, maintenance (as it requires valve adjustments), and repairs. It has a harsher ride and less storage space. In my opinion, the Z4MR/C is more for the dedicated Z4 enthusiast - someone that's already had a non-M.
