As long as you don’t need a faster lens, either 50 or 35 mm, you are set for life. Enjoy. If I was going to suggest anything, as a next purchase, it would be an extra battery.

I ended up going the cheapo route to start. I got a used M 240 (silver unfortunately) for $2500. The camera is a great, lightly used condition with the original box accessories and a brand new Leica battery.

For lenses I bought a cheap Leica 50mm f/2.8 Elmar M (silver) and a Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 Biogon (black).

I think these will be decent starter lenses.

Does Leica still make 39mm Silver UV filters? If so would you use one with this lens? It does have a hood. I see the black ones new for $125 but not the silver ones.

Oops I just make a thread about batteries. You think a second one is necessary? It seems to last a really long time...more than any of my Nikon or Olympus digital cameras.
