Again, it comes down to price. A $55K base price makes sense, is in line with past model increases, and is appropriate for the performance gain. It also keeps it out of some of the tougher competition and makes the M3 very attractive.

Mid $60Ks and it would be tough not to get a Porsche.
Really doubt that the RS5 will be closer in weight than RS4 is.
So you're not caring about the weight itself, but about the weight in relation to price and torque? The C63 might be for you then...
