How exactly is this overpriced? why dont you ask your dealer how much it would cost you to get a frozen individual color, just for fun?
Fast forward 10 years, with the limited production numbers this will be a *hot* item on the used market. It will fetch $$$ where your nice mineral white will be $20k if we're lucky. Thats what is special about this edition, and the fact that you will probably never see another one on the road very soon.
You have a good point, but the counter point is, no one should be paying sticker for a regular M3. You can get them for $600 over invoice or even less if you're a repeat customer since there's a $1,000 credit available there.
You'd be lucky to get any Edition cars for MSRP since most dealers will have a "market adjustment" tacked onto the price.
