Looking to purchase my first M3

Hi everyone, relatively new here.

I'm finally ready to purchase an F80 but not before seeking some advice from the experienced members here.

I would prefer white with CF roof and possibly 6M. Manual seems cheaper to maintain vs the DCT and will hopefully retain value better with the G80 potentially eliminating that option altogether. My commute is also mostly highway so I don't suffer traffic often.

Those that live in harsher climates, I'm from Chicago, how would all season tires fare vs a dedicated winter set. I ask because I have no intention of tracking the car and am not an aggressive driver.

What's the preferred method of purchase. Dealer CPO? Best time of year? Figure with winter they'll be sitting in showrooms.

I'm fairly anxious purchasing a vehicle that's not CPO - those that have, what has your experience been long term.

Much thanks.
