Yeah, the tech toys are a nice little gimmick. My wife and I both had a great time seeing HUD in action, but after the first 5 minutes we both agreed that we could go without. Same goes for the driving modes: I'd rather just have Sport+ be the default, with EcoPro the only other option (for stop-and-go traffic situations.) That said, it's nice to have options. Our M3 is pretty sparsely optioned and we've been fine with it. We've previously had another pretty loaded E46 and our Z4 had a lot of options too. In the end, the only thing that really matters is how enjoyable the car is. People are always surprised when I don't have my iPod/iPhone hooked up in the car; they look at me like I'm crazy when I say I'd rather have the window down and listen to the engine. Of course, that might change with the 328i and its super-quiet motor.
