Keep looking for the car you actually want. The M Sport is an appearance package. (I am assuming the M's performance is what hooked you.)

Personally, if performance is the criteria I would look at entirely different cars (e.g., Corvette, Porsche).

With all due respect, you can't really compare them. They are two different cars!!!
If you have driven an M3 and then an F30 335i, you will realize that they are COMPLETELY different. You really can't compare both.

Get in a 335i and wait it out... You'll be even more impressed with the m3 (m4?) performance that way... and I mean, a new car is always a better car, with some exceptions I admit...

I'm planning on trading my 328i for an F80 M3 in 2014 or thereabouts. But you'll have to decide what is right for you.

Wait for the M3. If that's the car you want, you're going to spend a heck of a lot of money im the meantime driving something your heart isn't set on. Plus, you wont be able to actually have your M Sport until at least September.
