M3 price in Finland

Hello!

For u guys who thought 95000 USD is too much for the new M3....

The new M3 costs 101000 in Finland and that is just the basic car!!! The car that I ll be ordering will cost 128 620,00 so please stop bitching about the prices there.... u guys re LUCKY... u know!!!

I m a real M3 fan and I drive a 2005 M3 CS (the only one in Finland).... just loving it. Its the BEST M3 so far.... I ve driven the E92 also and I think it is a better over all car..... I love the looks.... but the only colour is white with the cf roof.... forget about the sunroof....

I ve many friends at the Bmw so I know.... "something" about the car....

just because it costs 101000 euro in finland doesn't mean it can't be ridiculous if it costs 95,000 US in panama. IMO, an M3 is not worth that amount of money. i am not buying one, but anything over 70,000 US would be too much. if you have money to burn and don't care, more power to you. but anyone who thinks that 95,000 US or 101000 euro for an M3 is reasonable is crazy and needs help. but i guess that bmw is reaping the benefits of the different auto economies. i hope that they keep charging you a high price because that will make it cheaper for those in the US. haha.

They have an high % of tax for importation. I respect anyone telling us that he loves the M and I don't think he is crazy also if telling something strange ...Let him to pay 200.000 euro for that car if he wants. You can smile, but why to offend?he doesn't need any help...He is only enthusiast. The American enthusists will be probably happy and lucky about their final price.. I am sure...But with a change-rate at 1,42 between Euro-$ I would not be the BMW that has to decide the final price for the American Market. They are sure not sleeping too much in these days...

Completely agree, you buy a car like the M3, and in reality 'price' is a low priority issue. I would suggest that the 'price sensitive' first find out the real price then decide whether they can or even want to do it.

I am a major supporter of the M3 moving up market a little in virtually all aspects of the car including (at least for UK buyers) a small price increase - maybe 15% to 17% when comparing a fully loaded E46 to a fully loaded E92.

maybe i'm being cheap or maybe i am just part of the minority on this one. maybe americans are spoiled when it comes to car pricing. i don't know. but to me, the m3 isn't worth that much. you are right though savage...i'm not trying to tell anybody what to do with their money, just saying that i wouldn't spend that much of MY money on an m3 that was 95,000.

Its all Relative

I was in finland visting friends this summer, had some real nice days !
The Taxes are something, but so are the education system, the social
programs and the net worth of the middle class citizen.

The M3 is priced so that an upper middle class citizen in the US
can own it, In Finland the taxes prohibit the upper middle class
from this extravagence

My 08 Corvette was $43,500 Employee Cost, the car in Germany is
70K Euro, My wifes 07 335 convertable was $48K USD and is 65K euro

Between BMW and the Government the cars are being priced at a level
in europe discouraging affordability

But hey I am glad to be an American

About the price

I was just trying to say.... that some of u guys re lucky, because u can afford to buy an M3....

I guess that the basic salaries (of the people who re looking for a car like this)
re about the same in US, Germany, Finland....
The basic car costs 66750 in Germany, 95000USD in Panama and 101000 in Finland....
In Finland with the price of E90 330i you can get a M3 in Germany....

To you who sayed that the M3 is not worth 95000USD.... what kind of a car can you get in Panama for that much money?

Crazy..... well a Audi RS4 for costs about 120000€, Porsche 911 135000€ (not even the S version) and your car 335i basic price is about 70000€ and you dont get anything with that. If you want to add leather, M aero package, sat nav.... the price will be around 90000€.... DO YOU THINK YOUR 335i IS WORTH THAT MUCH MONEY!!!!

NO...I would never pay that much for a 335i either. I paid 42,000 USD for mine fully loaded minus PDC. 90000 euro is too much for me.

My personal feeling on this issue is just that - personal. Everyone has their own limit on how much they are willing or able to pay for a car. If 90,000 for an M3 is too much for some and OK for others, so be it. For me, the litmus test is to compare what other cars can be bought in the same price range. After this, if the decision is to go ahead and buy the M3, then great. However, to make a good sound wise decision, logic better trump emotion, otherwise you could be an unhappy camper down the road (pardon the pun).

It needs to be cheaper in America because we all have to save money to protect us from losing health insurance when we develop a catastrophic illness or getting put in some deathtrap of a nursing home when we retire.

We will probably know the accurate price when the E92 M3 hits the U.S. market sometime in Spring 2008 (Jan-Mar timeframe estimate).

I'm working with an agent who sells to deployed U.S. Military Sales Program, and they are predicting around 50,000-60,000 USD mark. They dont even know!

Dang, I didnt mean to start up an email war over prices.

How much would you have to pay for an M3???
You might join the U.S. military or work for them as a contractor and get stationed or assigned to Germany, Belgium, Italy, or England. Then you could have an M3 for around $55,000 USD. Probably not worth it though as you will likely earn much less income then what you do now!

I know how you feel, it is not as bad in Ireland but the one i have bought for January collection is costing €115,000.
BMW have a desireable product, if you want one you have to pay the price. Its as simple as that. if you dont think its worth whatever amount by a nissan micra and be happy with it.
Such is life

You guys should stop comparing prices. We live in the States and pay the shit out of everything...taxes, medical insurance, education fees and other high living costs. We worked like horses and earned 2-3 week vacation a year...
