The MY2011 ran from March 2010~September 2011
Various changes throughout, although very miscellaneous to most.
But as a prospective buyer, you should know the differences.

03/2010~08/2010: 2011
-E92/93 gets LCI tail lamps (E90 already got LCI lights as of MY2009 09/08 build)
-Competition package (ZCP) added as an option for E90/92
-Mineral white added as a color option for post 06/2010 builds.

09/2010~02/2011: 2011.5
Many threads reference the 2011.5 as the "September Changes".
For the M3, this includes:
-Automatic start/stop function added
-Additional bluetooth & smartphone connectivity, including bluetooth audio streaming (Combox)
-The aforementioned mineral white paint option
-18-inch Style 219M/260M alloy wheels receive bright silver finish in place of Ferric Grey finish
-Manually-adjsutable front seats introduced on E90/92 (USA only)
-Bi-color Novillo leather upholstery in two different combinations (Palladium Silver + Black or Fox Red + Black) offered for E90/92 (USA only)

03/2011~09/2011: 2011.75
-BMWApps/BMW Connected Drive added to the iDrive (6NR)

The 2011.75 is essentially a 2012 in all but name. The 2012 has the same specs as the 2011.75

You're welcome.
In case you were wondering, those dates reference the BUILD DATE, which identifiable via the VIN number or by looking at the side of the driver's side door.
If you are unable to see the car in person, obtain the VIN number and enter the last 7 digits here.
The decoder will identify the build date, as well as how the vehicle was optioned; it really helps with verifying the authenticity of the options/paint color/wheels/etc.

This is very good information as I am looking at 2011 through 2013 M3 Coupes.
Can anyone give me more information on the differences or updates that might be provided in the 2013 model year?
