What i'm getting at is that after the initial "M3 or nothing" demand is met, the market will decide the price -- just like with the M5. If the base price comes out over $62K, I'm going to be very cautious.....
+1. If the base is in the mid 60s, it would make a lot of sense to wait until the 2009 model year and pick it up at a significant discount. I just don't see how they can sell 50000 of these cars at that price.
