I recently bought a used 2011 50i (actual build date summer 2010).

It has most packages - premium, sport activity, premium sound, cold weather etc - but not the M. I am generally happy with everything with a few exceptions in the entertainment space. Specifically, this car does not have the BMW Apps module (and the dealers are saying it cannot be retrofitted). This module gives you a number of things: BT audio, no need for a special Y-cable to connect an iPhone / iPod to the iDrive, apps like TuneIn, album art.

If I were you, I would get a 2012 or late 2011 - build date after November 2010, in that case this option would be available.
