I'm buying mine, but I see your point.

However, I suggest if you are looking at a '10 or '11 (and maybe an '09) M3, right now with 2.9% financing for 60 months (+1% loyalty credit if you qualify, and I do!), taking a euro delivery vehicle is still likely cheap enough to allow you to buy some ridiculously long extended warranty that is better than the CPO one (many extended warranties are better than CPO, btw, and I've had a CPO BMW).
