I meant to say my *home* country...Thailand. Which is a 3rd world country. To put it in perspective, you can get a nice 2 bedroom condo for the same price of a new 335i.

well with all due respect... if you dont like the price... dont buy it? theres no use complaining about the price because someone else is obviously willing to pay and bmw is still in business.

i think that 47k for a car like this is still a bargain.

btw... try ED? with alot of work my cash price was less than 42k for my e92 335i with zsp, zpp, zcw, 6fl, ca on space/saddle/dark burl. this is before tax and trip but still...

And a far lesser quality car. Enjoy the door moldings that fall off, the failed coil packs while you're going 60 on the highway, and the constant defective A-Arm replacements.

LOL @ 47k. I see 335i coupe, less than 10k miles, for $39k. Don't let people convince you that it's buying the badge. Drinking too much sales koolaid or being selfish for resale value. Cold hard cash is all it matters here. Just another transaction and at any income level a better deal is a better deal. If people feel like they got too much cash laying around to burn give it to charity.

i always think we can buy cars at the lowest price in america compare to the rest of the world (judging by reading other countries' car magazines)

Sport package? why .. you can lower your car for like about 300 with hr sport suspension. 18 inches from the factory? that you might need it.. Navi system? why ? when you can get it from fry electronic for like 400 to 600 dollars portable one. you can move it around from one car to the other car . IT also rob your hp with you have navi. I-drive system.. it will also rob your hp away too. Parking Distance sensor. why? So it can add to your car weight. YOur steering adaptive control unit. WHy ? it can rob more hp from you .. and it is add weight to your car. What do you think so many 335i tracker disable the DSC so we can have better traction and plus they dont rob your hp away from you
Your english was robbed.

I just don't get it, I was planning to buy one next spring but after configuring one at bmwusa I'm starting to have second thoughts....

Does anyone agree here? I know it costs to play but seriously this is crazy....

FYI - the way I configured it was a 335i sedan, with Sports, Premium, Cold Weather, CA, and Auto.
Everything is expensive in Germany relative to the dollar. It's lucky we pay the amount we do here because in other countries, the 335i is much more expensive.

Yup, it's stupid to buy a 335i if you think its a race car

His car has no options at all, hence why he referred to his car as 'baseline'.

Yeah, i figured that one out after reading down a bit.

He says "fully loaded?" as to confirm what the OP said, and said, I paid 37k! lol! You are paying too much for a fully loaded one..

That's how I read it anyways...
