I hope the base pricing is around 50-55k and I can't see how bmw justifies the 10k jump. However, there is a 10-12k jump from the 04' M5 to the 07' M5. I just spoke to my dealer and I told him if the new M3 exceeds my limit then move my deposit to 135i. I guess I will cross that bridge when it comes.
If that's the case I am willing to offer my spot to some people here for no financial gain, but gratuity is welcomed :-) (It's a pretty high spot in socal.)
