Changes by model year?

Hey guys... I am going to buy a used M3, I was just curious as to what the differences are between each year, if anything. From the 2005-06, I've heard nothing, but what about 01/02/03/04/05 I looked online but haven't had any luck. Google is too smart for its own good

Search here, there is info.

But off the top of my head:

2001 - 2002 - SMG II available, Ti shadow trim. Some different color options.
2002 - 2003 - Some color changes, I think another trim option (ALuminum???), Aux input on head unit, ability to hook up BMW Sirius and control it from head unit
2003.5 - LED tail lights
2003 - 2004 - BMW Assist available
2004 - 2005 - ZCP package

Nothing earth shattering from hear to year except the SMG and possibly the ZCP. Also some packaging changes as to what you could order stand alone versus in packages only.
