Yes, BMW fooled us all at first with the relatively low base price, but how many people will end up buying bare bones cars without the packages and leather? They are making us pay $400 for a USB port, and who doesn't need a USB port these day? Clever, ha? Regardless of how restrained one intends to be, this is more like a $65k car without taxes.

I don't think the M3s will get hit as hard as the M5s, but yes, there will be significant deals this time next year. I don't have the patience to wait for that though.
