long beach bmw in socal has an e90 m3 for $53,800

at least it's what it appeared on their website. go to longbeachbmw.com and go to new vehicles tab then go to m inventory. it was a black e90 m3. i'm pretty sure it's a typo but someone may want to check it out.

Whoever put that car on the internet is on crack. Lets start with the fact that its not black, its jerz black (there is a difference). And 53K? WTF?
Someone should head down there, check it out and tell them - actually - insist they give them the car at that price. I would if I was in so-cal, but i'm not.
Not sure how it will work though, their website has a fantastic disclaimer that says not responsible for errors...

so the price is legit? wow, even a bone stock e90 m3 worth more than 53k don't you think, unless it's a demo and has some mileage on it.

Yeah but I'd imagine it's 27 of some of the worst miles known to mankind.

Sounds like the new owner of this M3 will have to put up a fight like Dooma350 just did. Maybe we'll have another thread with 400,000+ views.

53,800 was listed as "web price" not base msrp.

I doubt that there are any zero-option cars on dealer lots. Someone was just sloppy and wrote down the base price because that's the first big number they saw. I'm sure the car has many options totalling well over 60k, and as others have said, there is likely to be a markup as well.

Edit: you can see clearly from the pics that the car definitely has 19s, EDC, leather, heated seats, Nav and Premium sound. I'm sure its loaded with ZTP, ZPP and ZCW. They will not sell it at the listed price - its a mistake. And unlike Dooma's ebay car, there is no contract here - they can charge whatever they want if you go to buy it. Though advertising it at $53k is probably in violation of some law, clearly there other M cars are priced correctly, meaning this was just a mistake.

Hey guys - just to clear this up - the ladies upstairs in the business office inputed the car into inventory without any options - and it auto uploaded to all of our websites including cars.com, autotrader.com, and longbeachbmw.com

This is a complete mistake - however - I will be happy to take any order at MSRP or sell this M3 Sedan for MSRP.

This is a fully loaded M3 Sedan with an MSRP of $70,020.

Thanks!

Will

and P.S. The 27 miles were not driven hard at all. We received this car from BMW with 23 miles on it. Our regional manager said that the original truck that it was put on broke down so a BMW employee drove it back to Oxnard and put it on another truck. They are not test drive miles.

That is why
