I hope to pick up another M3 or maybe M4 as long as the ///M DNA is retained in the next generation, but I would not want to give this one up.
I prefer something that's been out for a while. Greater chance of having the bugs ironed out, more features added as standard, perhaps more interesting options (e.g. competition package). I don't mind driving "the old model" x many years and never have.
That said, the main reason I waited till 2013 was to pay off my house first.
Julie's thrown in her 2 cents! The 2013 thread is complete.
