There is no PDC button on the M3 as far as I know. I think it's because there are no front sensors and the rear sensors comes on automatically when you reverse.

+1

PDC button only exists on cars with Front and Rear PDC. US-Spec does not include Front PDC as an option.

My guess is the missing buttons are two for seat heating (when it was not part of the temp controls), PDC (not US), and flat tire monitor (part of iDrive).

Sort of tacky on BMW's part to reprint the 3-series manual and stick an M3 on the cover, call it the M3 manual, then add an addendum manual that addresses all the changes...esp. on a 60-70k car.
Also a bit tacky that they now use switch blanks. They used to make specific configurations of those buttons without the blanks. I know the e46 was like that and I think the e90/92 were like that until the facelift.

I also picked up at the Welt and do not have the cupholders in the rear. Is this what others have as well. In one of the M3 supplemental manual they said that because I have the modified rear armrest that saves weight, I would get the cupholders in the rear divider. My car only has a space for maybe cards or small flat items between the rear vents and slide open drawer. BTW I do not have ZCP but do have a ski door that opens but no ski bag. Is that normal?

Yes or Maybe

My ED'ed M3 with ZCP AND Cold Weather package has the the padded plug (modified armrest) with either a pass-through if you use the flip up handle OR the Ski Bag if you press the round button, but NO cup holders. (see attached poorly taken photos). Cold Weather package gets you the ski bag, without it, no bag
