(The biggest win in the Tech Package, speed/nav/audio menus project on your hood, a can't-miss feature)

6NF Smartphone Integration
6NL BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth and USB
6NR BMW Apps

(If you use an iPod or an iPhone, these give you some significant wins like the lack of a Y cable, on-screen album art, the ability to send addresses to the nav from your phone or web browser, three-years of an OnStar-like emergency service called BMW Assist, and then of course the Apps which only have Facebook and Twitter right now but will soon have Siri integration and other things. The enhanced Bluetooth also gives you wireless music streaming from Pandora and the ability to receive texts and emails into iDrive and have them read to you while you drive.)

6UH Real Time Traffic Information
(Very useful, even if you only use your nav a handful of times a year)

6WA Instrument cluster with extended contents
(Larger display between and beneath the gauges with additional information)

AAA Big-Ass Widescreen Display
(The only way to get the gorgeous wide display is with the Technology Package. The screen is such a dominant feature in the car it's hard to stare at it 24/7 with the smaller LCD in there)

Something to understand is that the F30 is a technological wonder, could be the most advanced/connected passenger car ever made. So to cheat yourself of the full integration of the driving experience and the technical experience is viewed by many to be a poor compromise.

BJ, I got all of the above with just the NAV selected except of the HUD. when i test drove the car, i couldn't see anything projected and I couldn't figure it out, then the rep told me its your sunglasses they are polarized. Dude i can't drive without sunglasses even on a cloudy day, plus they are prescription therefore it was just NAV and I am glad BMW allowed this stand along. I hate spending any money on things I don't really use.
