-Bear Sterns almost failing....
-Fed to likely drop interest rates 1 full % next week....
-Euro at record high to the dollar.....
-$10 Billion /mo or so just to pay for Iraq.....(right or wrong)
-Strong competition from Lexus IS-F, Mercedes CLK63, Audi RS4/S5, hell BMW's own 335i, and others...
-Dealers in a dream land thinking they would get across the board $5-10k+ above MSRP.
- Business sales off records amt for Xmas and most of last 2 quarters.
-Gas at almost $4/gallon for regular...let alone 91+ octane the M3 desires!
- the silent recession we're in which NO ONE officially in the govt will exist! LOL

And you wonder why the cars are sitting or you're moving up the waitlists quicker than expected? Alot of folks are choosing to keep that $70k close to home rather than drop it into a luxury item and want such as an M3 no matter how wealthy they may or may not now be.

I am just thankful that my particular situation will still allow me to get the car but believe me I did think twice since my order with all the above going on!
