My '07 E90 has SS and I love the way it handles. I'm sure an F30 will be even better, but I would REALLY to drive it myself before taking the plunge.

Yeah, you should definitely drive one before making the commitment.

If you're still going to consider the 2012, make sure it's appropriately discounted. For it to be a good deal, you should be able to get it for ~ 15% less than an equivalently optioned 2013, as it's lost close to 15% in value simply by virtue of it being a year older than a 2013.

If you could get a 2013 model for $50k (for example), you would want to be targeting <$43k for the 2012 for this to be a reasonable deal. In my experience (in the US), dealers do not discount previous model year cars enough to make them worthwhile.
