True, any car costing around 65-75k dollars isn't going to sell that well. It's out of the price range of so many people now. I don't remember the cost of the e46 m3 when new, but for a car that was on sale only 5-10 years ago it certainly wasn't that expensive, maybe in the 50k range. And that's when the economy was doing better too! 50k is a lot easier to swallow then 65k. Plus I am guessing the 335 ate a lot of the M3 sales as well. Its an amazing performer for a good bit less.
