They priced the M3 in 2007 when usd to yen rate was 124. now its like 85. so the cars became 50% more expensive on the FX alone lol.
The m3 coupe w/DCT went from 87k USD to 125k USD just on the yen appreciation in 3 years due to the world economy tanking. Note that this price includes all taxes etc. so if a loaded m3 in the US is 75+8% tax, the price wasn't that different originally. All M cars in Japan are fully loaded. Every 3 series and up has idrive w/nav standard for example.
