Guys,

Just wanted to thank all the F30 owners here. It's been a pleasure serving on this forum for the past 8 months .

I'm trading in my F30 for an M3, and despite that I will end up with shit load of negative equity, there is nothing more worth than the piece of mind.

Here is why I did it, the F30 is a great car but I had many problems with it given its a first production car, and despite of bringing the car in multiple times I still had some issues remaining such as the vibration, faulty alarm signals and rattling and squeaking in the cabin. I felt that it wasn't worth all this money in paying for it. The new M4 is not coming out in 2 years or so and the historic V8 engine of the E92 M3 is going out of production. Although I was planning to trade in my F30 for the new M4 in the future, I realized that it will be history repeating it self, basically getting another first production car and facing the same problems that might come with the first production of M4. I think keeping the M3 for the longest it takes for the new M4 to settle down is where I'm headed. Then ill think of the trade then.

Merry Christmas

Funny or sad? Good luck. Hope your M3 meets all your expectations.

Wow, we should have swapped

I went from a 2012 E92 M3, to the F30h. I miss the M3 of course, but the F30 is a better day-to-day car for me.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your new M3, it's a special car for sure.

Just saw 2 new 2013 M3s at my dealer this morning...I came a little.

Coupe and vert.

Stickered at $80k plus...if that's sticker, what so they usually go for?

Same as other BMWs, invoice + $$$. Just like other BMWs, 7% off sticker is doing pretty well.

Mine is an E92 for $75845 and they downed it to 73000. You probably saw E93s. They will never go down 7% on an M3. Every dealership I went to said why would they discount a special car. It was hard to get them to discount any money.

I think you need to do a little more research before you buy your car. There is currently 1500 in Holiday Credit and $750 in Bmw Loyalty Credit.

We just put a deposit on an E92 M3 for my brother:

MSRP: 73345
- Dealer Discount= -4634.15 (Invoice+ 500)
- Holiday Credit = - 1500.00
- BMW Loyalty = - 750

Selling Price: 66,460.85 + TTL

So Just to clarify the dealer sold the car for $500 over the invoice (MSRP-7%) and then he gave us, $1500 Holiday Credit and another $750 in BMW loyalty Cash.

And to be honest, every dealer we spoke to was with in $600 dollars of our selling price.

So Make sure before you buy you do your homework!

They did apply the holiday credit and its actually $2550. $1500+$700 loyalty+$300 ultimate driving machine app. They applied it to my down payment on the car. So instead of $4000 down on the lease its $1500 and it includes the dealer fee and all that.

Its because of the large US auto manufacturers. They sell closer to cost so the imports need to price accordingly.
