Newbie Shopping Around (advice appreciated!)

I'm a total BMW newbie nevermind M3 so I'm looking for some advice and answers from veteran M3 enthusiasts.

Reading the '13 pricing thread, what does "European Delivery" mean exactly and is there an advantage of ED over dealer delivery?

When are the '13 models hitting the dealerships? Only seeing one dealership with a new '12 model. (I realize those that have ordered a '13 are anxious to take delivery of their vehicles, sorry don't mean to make you even more anxious!)

I'm also considering buying a used M3. 2010 model is probably the oldest I'd consider. I did find a 2010 model on autotrader with 21k miles for $53k. Any thoughts on this M3?

Thank you in advance!

Quoting myself here but is there an explanation as to why this car had 1 owner in the carfax but it is shown as "vehicle sold" at a few dealers? Could this just be the case of dealers swapping cars to meet buyer requests?

And there's seems to be a pretty huge gap with nothing reported:

My bad. Didn't bother searching because I didn't think I'd have much luck using vbulletin's search functionality for words like "2013" then realized I could search with google and found the right info about ED and 2013 delivery dates.
