2013 bmw m3

My lease is up in november of this year. My dealer told me the new 3 series coupe will be available most likely early next year. Is that an accurate time frame. I really want to get the new body style M3 bc I just dont want the v8. I would appreciate someone with some accurate info to chime in. I was also looking at the 335is but it makes sense to just get the M3 pricewise I think unless this thing doesn't come out for 2 years like some of you are saying on here. lmk thanks!

My understanding F32 will be introduced in second half of 2013.
M model will follow latter.

Bottom line...time to savor an e92 M3.

Nobody knows for sure. But you think they'll produce a new M3 when the current one is still going to be produced until mid-2013? I say no way.

My nephew's 335is (6spd) next to my M3. He has some nice mods its a nice car. But after he drove my M3 - even in pre-breakin mode - he commented on how different the M3 feels, and understands "why" enthusiasts rave about the E9X - M3's

PS: personally I like the 335is it's a badass car - especially the exhaust note - sounds like a how an inline BMW 6 is supposed to sound. But its a different ride compared to the M3. Think E46 330ci ZHP to E46 M3 (sorta)
IMHO of course
