I think this a solid business stragey in a shaky at best economy..... Hopefully they will reduce production of the M3....since less M3's sitting in inventory at the dealers makes the residual value of ours better!!

I am not sure about that. If there are less buyers of new BMWs, there will be less buyers of used ones.

Resale values do well when the market is strong.

1. Why do they want to make 4 cyl and kill the brand image in the US? So the 1 series is the new Jetta and the 3 is the Passat? Paying 30k + for a 4 cyl is a joke in my opinion.

2. There are end of the year deals as we speak. Am I the only ones watching the commercials? Credit approval is another story.

3. What about those hydrogen cars? Or a hybrid Mini or 1 series? You have to wait a while to get a new Prius where I live. Even with the state of the economy as is.

Build a $500k car like Benz I say and pray the market unfreezes in the US with a bailout.
