4. F30 M3 will be out in like 2 years?
No, there probably won't be an F30 M3. However an F32 would more likely 3+ years away, bordering on 4. And you'd likely pay near-full price at that time.

Keep your C63 for now and wait about 3 years and get the new M3; it will bash on the e90/2.

You can make your C63 more pleasurable, just keep buying mods. Trust me, throw on some headers, maybe a geared limited slip differential, suspension. You will smile plenty....

After this... Enjoy it. Hold off. The F30 M3 pre-orders are probably less than 1 year away and it will suit all your needs.

For this statement alone I would keep your current car.
If you sell now you will take around a 15-20% hit and you will not get anything out of the mods you made and they also may make it difficult to sell unless you can put the oem body panels back on.

Being a C63 owner myself, I honestly have to say the M3.

To OP: Get the headers and then you'll really miss the NA power. Since you are in Taiwan, just contact Innotech.

you bought a C63 six months ago...and put a body kit on it already? And are bored with it?

Do yourself a favour...waste less money. Buying shit won't make you happy. Maybe get a puppy.

In all seriousness though, all of these cars (S/RS/M/AMG) are awesome...and you'll perennially be wanting something else because there are so many gems to choose from. Keep that C63, get your exhaust sorted and take a trip to the local dragstrip so you can really have some fun with it. Those cars are straight line monsters. I realize you are now likely to say 'the handling brilliance of the M3 is what I really want' but at the end of the day, I bet if you bought an M3 you'd start complaining about how there is a dearth of torque and 99% of the time (when you're going less than 9/10ths) the car doesn't feel fast enough for you. One always wants what they don't have.
