While I do agree that in a perfect world one would pay the same amount of money for the same thing this year as they did last year. There is a little mathematical equation called inflation.
Also, sadly, people equate $$$ with prestige and or value. Which is not always the case, this case certainly being the exception. BMW is also well aware that their brand is considered a luxury vehicle in North America and will fall in suit with this mentality by keeping prices reflective as such.
