The 2017, 2015 & 2012 BMW M3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 75% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 M3. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 8.04 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2015 & 2012 M3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
