IMO, get the latest and cheapest M3 that you can get and
that matches what you exactly are looking for (colors/options), and if you are financing then the lowest interest rate possible. Leasing is right now a big money dump.
It sounds obvious but if you think about it it is not, as although there are some '09 M3 still on dealer lots (at least 50 MY2009 and 160 MY2010 M3 left nationwide according to autotrader) that could be hit with another round of discounts in the coming weeks just to clear them out, and the same could be happening to those MY2010 after April, if any of those cars is not near what you are looking for then it will not matter how much money you will save.
