That's 2013 dollars though.

$56000 in 2013 equals to roughly $60300 In today's money.

Agreed. I buy CPO, a year old or less with no more than 15K-18K miles.

My plan exactly lol but I feel like a used M340i will be rare to find, if not impossible

I currently drive a 2013 328i XDrive and I'm torn between getting a brand new 2020 M340i, or going for a used 2016 340i or a 2016 M3 to not take that M340i depreciation. I have $10k to put down if I finance and trade in my 328i on top. Don't want to do more than 36 months. If I go for M340i I'll have to do 60 months.

Be patient and wait. The right M340i will turn up before the year is over.

It is amazing how many people repent or tire of their brand new (Even custom built ordered) BMWs just to trade them in 6-9 months down the line and take a massive bath in cold water depreciation. I guess for some folks their financial stability and well being takes a back seat in the name of the greatest and latest and been seen behind the wheel of the proverbial holy grail.

But thanks to these folks, we 'smarter' buyers can pick them up CPO for very reasonable money. Most of these cars still look and smell brand new, with full warranties in effect.

So are you saying go for the used cars for now and in 2-3 years go for the M340i?

No, I am saying wait a few more months and keep your eyes peeled for a M340i to show up.

I've heard March for the 330 and the 340 a month or two later.

Like any other new model, I'd imagine some dealers get it early but most wait. With that being said, I'd expect the early birds to be in places like Orange County, not New Hampshire...

Yes but what year was that?

My fairly modest 2011 E90 328i had a window sticker of $37K and change. Car had Dakota leather, 17" wheels, sunroof, power standard seats, automatic, RWD, homelink, self dimming rear view mirrors, metallic paint, no NAV

Like others have said the M-Sport is both an appearance package and bundles the convenience package in with it, which isn't standard on the Sport and Luxury Line models.

You can spec a 530i with the same 2L 4 pot turbo to up to $73K...

Super excited that "control body" and "refrigerant" are included as std equipment--I'd hate to pay extra for them.

They don't list everything here. Also, the xDrive cars have always been an M Sport appearance package. They don't get the M Sport suspension. The G20 M340 xi will get M Sport suspension though. They've also "fixed" the suspension with the G20. The F30 had horrible base suspension (and M Sport suspension for that matter).
Xdrive cars and rwd cars both have the same 2vf msport suspension for the 330i. Msport gets suspension parity on the 330 and M340
