Difference between 2010 and 2011 M3?

Not sure I can wait for the M4, so I've been looking at used M3 Coupes, are there any differences between 2010 and 2011 builds?

As far as I know, 2011 got the LCI tail light.

If you can't wait for the M4, why not get a 2013 M3?

Other than LCI tails the later model 2011 came with dvd in motion or whatever and apps and also auto start/stop.

In addition to the previously mentioned differences, there are different part numbers inside the airbox, for the air filter and filter retainer. The 2011 air filter is longer.

Some say this new longer filter's extra surface area makes it flow so much better that the 2011 and later cars make 73 horsepower more than the Civic, I mean 2010 and older models, but only if you have M-DCT, because everyone know a six-speed is slower.

(sorry)

Not all 2011s are the same since there were multiple production change cycles within that model year, each cycle including multiple changes. I don't think there were any meaningful changes in the 2010 model year. On the E92 and E93, 2011s got LCI tail lights from the start, and Mineral White became a color option on all body styles. Starting November 2010 production (nicknamed 2011.5), the Competition Package arrived for the E90 and E92, and Combox was added, which brought features including not needing the Y-cable for iPhone connectivity, displaying album art on iDrive, and enabling Bluetooth audio streaming. Adding the Competition Package caused the Technology Package to be replaced by the Convenience Package, and the Premium Package now listed power seats, which were previously standard but added to the Premium Package because the new standard seats were manually operated for maximum weight savings. 2011.5 also made M Drive standard and introduced Engine Auto Start/Stop. Then starting March 2011 production (nicknamed 2011.75), BMW Apps became available.

I'm probably forgetting some stuff above, but that should get you started.
