Better than I expected, except for the enhanced sound. You officially got me on ZTP E.

I assume things like iPod, heated seats, and Leather are at normal 3-series prices?

$78752 out the door for me, assuming $2900 for 2MK. Yay for Louisiana taxes.

Yeah, I figured under $4k, but didn't think it would be low $3,000s

The enhanced sound is definately bad. 335i and other M cars gets Logic7 standard. Not a fan of that at all! $1900 is beastly.
I wonder if that is the only audio option or Logic 7 is an option at regular 3-series prices.

This is over the top for me. I would have considered if it was <$1k, but can't see how this would be worth it.

Less than I was expecting, except for EPS, which is about what I was expecting, judged by European prices. ZTP iI thought would be closer to $4k.

Yes, too bad there's not a Logic7 audio option like in other countries. I'd just as soon get base and do aftermarket enhancements later than spring for $1,900.

Logic 7 is a $1200 option on regular three series. And for the M5/6 High-End Audio is $700. Which obviously equals $1900.
How can BMW give the M3 the lowest-end option for audio???

Easy. They wanted to have that low, low base price.

On my E46 I did a DIY and replaced my speakers, amp and added a 12" subwoofer. That was a hella day of work. Parts cost me ~$800, all ebayed, mostly a/d/s. It sounded great until the amp died (I didn't mount it with enough ventilation, it was in the trunk below the trunk floor). I had one of the "better" local shops put a new amp in. I had to teach them how to adjust the gains to avoid hissing and I still have a slight ground loop. I'm afraid to drill a new hole to ground it and fix it.

If you live near a good audio shop, bless you, but I'm screwed. Oh, and my speakers "fit" but now the doors squeak ever so slightly because they're clipped a bit off tolerance according to my dealer.

Moral of the story -- aftermarket is only good with qualified people. I'm not one, and it seems that no one else in New Orleans is either.

I envy people who live near a shop that knows what they are doing.

Is that premium package number correct? So we would be getting power mirrors, trim, assist, bluetooth, compass, garage door opener just for an additional $450 on top of the regular leather? If so, that's a great deal.

Good points--you get a 4-year warranty with that OEM system, too. Maybe I'll reconsider.

I have a somewhat similar upgrade story with my old 300ZX. I bought everything from Crutchfield, and installed it myself. It was kick ass by the time I was done, but it did take me two days. Fortunately it never stopped working, and I didn't damage anything, but the car was already 7 years old so I didn't care. I would care with a new M3, so you are right; it should be done professionally. The question is can you beat a $1900 upgrade with say a $1200 job (including labor)? I don't know. I'd have to do the research. Actually, I just want to live with the base system to see how I like it first before I do anything.

a smidge under 73k otd for me, the premium sound price is ridiculous, i'm starting to think if i really need it, 1.9k for a stock radio is kinda ridiculous, especially considering they force you in to buying navi or tech package to even get it in the first place a big to bmw for that one

Yes, it is. Just verified with my CA. That and the Tech Pkg are quite a bit less than I thought.

No (unless you replace it aftermarket).

ZTP is a decent deal as well, Nav-2100, EDC-1000, CA-500 = $3600 plus whatever Mdrive costs.
