My CA said that it is unlikely that the M3, X6 or the 1-series will see any price increases (or very minimal) since they where just released. BMW priced the cars knowing the market they where getting into.

We could see quite a price increase for that sweet new iDrive
i don't think that options will increase much. msrp 2-3% and maybe 100 dollars here or there on certain options. we already saw metallic paint increase...that could maybe go up another 50 bucks. Tech package might go up 100-150 to accommodate the new i-drive. BMW is going to take the hit elsewhere...changing their leasing and financing strategies and reallocating vehicle. i don't think that the M3 is going to see the majority of the action

Good point if this is true. I definitely hope you're right.

Unfortunately, I don't think BMWFS's finance rates are going to improve on the M3. Just in the last month and a half that I've been waiting, auto finance rates have gone up almost an entire percent across the board. Part of me is starting to regret waiting for an '09. Given that I can no longer get Sparkling Graphite, I'm going to lose out on major discounts on '08 inventory, possible '09 price increases, and the rising interest rates...I'm pretty sure the updated iDrive will not be worth all that.
