The case is similar in Hong Kong that M3 is priced way way expensive. I believe it may be partly due to the appreciation of EUR vs USD which HKD is pegged to. Other European cars were priced probably based on the exchange rate in late 2006 while the new M3 is priced based on current exchange rate.

the list price of E92 M3 is some 85% of the list price of E60 M5 or of a 997s. A 2006 Marsarati Quattroporte cost some 10% less compared to a new E92 M3. They may not be the same sort of car but I am really thinking of taking back my deposit and buy a used Marsa or 997s.

guys or in fact MARWAN,

I am curious to know what were the reasons that amde you trade your "Lousy" Audi Q7 (4.2 Premium I am guessing?) to an X5 2007? what did you NOT like about the Audi vs. the X5 now after driving both?

Thanks... and for the E92 M3 I hear your pain but yah so many other places in this world are WAY more $$ to own one so look at the glass half full here my friend.

Hi Marwan

I went to BMW dealer here in Riaydh and asked them about the M3 price and they told it's more than 300,000SR(80,000$) so i told him:finger::finger: i wil buy it from Dubai. Now i am feeling very angry after reading your thread:mad:.Pleas tell me it's not true.We dont have high taxes why they are keep rising the prices.

because they are greedy F@%^ERS, it will be so much cheaper in the U.S.

also, Mercedes is so expensive here, so people switched to BMW, but now BMW is following Mercedes path, they're raising their prices like mad! people are so stupid here, they have too much money and don't care as long as they get Mercedes or a BMW.....it pisses me off! and this is coming from someone that own an E60 M5 and the new X5.

you know, the CL500 costs 500,000 dirhams here(same in riyal), that's $135000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ....when in the U.S $100k


EDIT: CLK63 Black Serie is at the showroom here for 900,000....that's $244000.....when in the U.S it costs $140,000!!!

I feel your pain big time.

I too realized the big increases BMW AGMC and MB GARGASH are implementing on the new generation of cars.

like i said, it's the foolish customers that allow them to raise the prices and still buy their cars!

can you believe the S65 cost 1 million dirhams? ...that's super car territory!!! ...and no matter how fast the S class goes, it's still a big, huge, heavy car that can never be sporty! it's just too big to fit the category!

i'd rather get a Porsche Turbo for half that price, and keep the other 500,000 dirhams in my pocket!

brace yourself for the E92 M3 CSL price! it's gonna be scary!

Thumbs down

I live in Dubai too...I know the other reason that could behind all this! There's only one agent for each car manufacturer over here. Max 2(chevrolet, AL yousuf and liberty, I think they are the only one)....Anyway, my point is, there is no competition over here for dealer's to make their price low....So they increase their price to their liking....They are selling corvette's for 215000dhs....It should priced around 180000dhs according to USA....Heck..the 335i should be priced around 160k but its a whopping 235k ova here.


Anyway, the other reason could also be the Euro against the weak dollar.....UAE follow's dollar (actually most or all Gulf countries)....so the conversion from Euro to dollar is becoming heavy over here....!

Anyway....the weak dollar is going to hit european cars in USA in the coming days....Sources indicate that the price of a euro car in USA is going to increase substantially(1/5th of the old price,according to my estimate )
