I think what you were supposed to get from that was the 53K base price for the M3....

Lexus might be attempt to undercut the next-generation M3, which rumors have suggested will be considerably more expensive. However, a report in August suggested BMW was eyeing a $53,975 price tag for the next M3, which is a small premium over the old model than originally anticipated.
Just read that the new ISF easily avoids the Gas Guzzler Tax due to excellent gas mileage (partly due to their new 8-speed tranny).

I have the feeling the new M3 will have a hefty gas guzzler tax on it (just look at the M5). Yet another couple of $K adding to the final price.

Sorry pay up!

Damn you!

How about an I.O.U.

P.S. Today in class we were going over multiplexing between a cars modules and I informed my teacher of Flexray. I felt super cool for knowing about the whole Consortium and all the research behind it, (thanks to this forum) I looked like an all-star.

If you look at M Coupe v. M3 pricing, the M3 costs about $2k more (e36 M Coupe v. e46 M3 in 01) so I would figure $2k more than the Z4 M coupe or about $53-54k base as jmf69 suggested.

So an automatic tranny get better mileage than a manual?? The opposite is true. It must be something about a strange shift program or shutting down cylinders or something of the sort. Seems like BMW could implement something on SMG to do the same. Maybe starting in 2nd (1st will be very short) then skipping to 4th. I would definitely like to avoid the GG tax. Any idea what it will cost on the new M3 (same as M5, how much is that?).
