e 46 is structurally stronger, which probably makes it a safer car than e 36. by the way, e36 performed quite poorly in crash tests, worse than honda accord.
pick options most important to you; no one can tell you which ones you should get, all depends on your life style/preference.\
personally, i would get the sports package, moon roof, cd, HK system is not that good, not worth the money. rear side air bags if you care about your passengers, xenon if you have the extra 500, gps is not always accurate, get it only if you get lost easily, you can also get after market for much less.
hope this helps you
