I am now planning in getting the next gen M3 next year, rather than a late E92 (unless there are awesome deals before that)
Sounds like a smart idea, OEM, and the correct one. When you eventually sell it (or trade) stock is better than modified. I too am sort of on the fence, as my warranty is up in March 2013. To wait for the next gen M3, buy a 2013, or switch cars all together. GT3RS is a canidate.
See ya at a VIR event soon?
