Yeah look at M5 and M135i playing synthetic engine noise through the speakers, that's the kind of tricks they play these days, and M3/M4 might be next. It will be faster for sure, but a better car? I'm not so sure.

Everyone has different taste

I prefer handling, performance and package of a car that makes it a better car, than sound. Don't get me wrong, sound is important but doesn't make it a better car. Even McLarens, Porsches, Audi, etc has things to enhance sound these days

No where to go but up..because these things are never coming back.
Cherry GNX's cost 30k new in 1987. Today cars with 5000 miles on them are selling for 70k on ebay. An inflation calculator I found on the internet tells me that 30k in 1987 = about 60k today. Storage and fees means they just about broke even, 25 years later.

I think the normal E92 M3's will hold their value pretty well. E90's are more rare and should go up in value. The money cars will be the rares ones. They only made 250 M3 GTS's and they are all sold. I don't know how many of the other rare M3's are out there, but any of these cars with only a few thousand miles on them will be very expensive in 30 years.

Cars are not good investments in general, but damn I wish I had a M1 right now.
2014 M3 will be faster, but perhaps not better in all people's eyes.

You want to restart paying off virtually the same car? If you were switching up to something different that seems worth it but I just don't see enough of an upside to go from 09 to 13. Unless of course your 09 has a lot of problems. But if doesn't and you've put a good amount of miles on it, then its a keeper.
