A 65k base price sounds reasonable if has an MT, but some say there won't be an MToffered.

If there's no MT version, I can't imagine BMW not including the only tranny, M-DCT or whatever replaces M-DCT, in the base price since the M3 won't be sold as the only vehicle on the planet which the customer has to opt for a tranny at additional cost to base price. So maybe that ~$3k tranny gets shoved into the base price. Then we're at 68-69k with DCT "standard". Another 10k+of options/packages + TTL could easily see out-the-door price in the $80-$85k range for the coupe; nevermind the vert. Regardless, a base price increase that's close to the percentage increase of the E92 vs the E46 is too be expected, IMO, maybe more.
