I don't think financing a car over 72 months is a good idea, especially for young guys who should be putting money smartly into solid investment vehicles. Many things can happen in 6 years and you probably don't want to be stuck with a good deal of income committed to a depreciating asset.
I just got 2.5% for 72 months for a VW CC two weeks ago so this 5.9% from BMW is not inflation-related at all, this is just BMW going back to basics: making a lot of money with less demand.

By the way, I also got my M3 at 0.9% for 60 months last year...
