Clearly this was a tough emotional decision for you--but buying a car (unless it's just pure transportation) is always like that. This is the right decision. This car may have seemed great but it would have been a nightmare in the future.
You'll find another M3--one with more value for your $ and without issues--and you'll fall in love with that one too. And it won't disappoint you down the road with "issues" and "baggage".
Let the hunt begin!
