You are not gonna like this but..............
When I first looked at my E46 M3 in 2002 the lease was $1,200 w/2500 down!
DAMN! Sooooo I blew 10k (stupid now that I look back IMHO) and got the lease down to something reasonable..
Soooo..... I would not expect it to be anything less than this for sometime..
The new M3 is moving upscale and no doubt the lease and the people buying it will too.....
Thus the reason for the 335's performance.. What a deal- E46 M3 performance for under 50k with leases around 600-700 a month.
Fricking bargain if you ask me......:rocks:
