With so few coming to the US, I seriously doubt they will be hitting $30k anytime soon. In the long run, I think the 1M may hold its value better than the e9x M3 simply due to low production volume although a lot of this depends on the next generation of M cars I'm sure.
I haven't driven one but based on what I've read/watched, the 1M seems like a great buy for the money compared to other cars brand new.
