Invoice on a fully loaded $70k M3 is around $65k. I might wait until the 2010s come out. BMWNA should discount the new 09 M3s $7k or so off like last year for the 08s.
I still have to pay Indiana state sales tax when I register it and that's a full 7%
I already get raped enough on taxes. Some states only charge a quarter of a percent sales tax on cars.
If I spend ~$55k on a slightly used M3 + 7% tax = ~$59k + another couple grand for other IN registration/title fees ~$61-62k
So new 09 M3 reduced to $55-58k + (no sales tax for the first $50k since it's a new car) = ~$58 to $60k.
Any thoughts are much appreciated!
