Official M3 Pricing Confusion

I went to my dealer earlier this afternoon and saw the M3 in person for the first time finally and i fell in love all over again. but one thing i noticed was the base price instead of being $57,275 was $55,275. Fully loaded came out to be $68,348. And if your thinking it was a sedan no it was not. Anyone know the reason for this? I asked a few sales people and nobody had an answer

weird, well 57,275 is not the real MSRP for coupe, thats with the transportation charge included. Strange how the base msrp is lower than normal. perhaps its selling with a discount?

Here is another sticker for a coupe that shows base of $56,500. Maybe it is regional pricing differences :

The base MSRP is $56,500. Destination brings it to $57,275.

I really doubt they will be able to sell a car with that markup. Even a rotten-rich person that doesn't give a sh&% for money would realize that paying that kind of money for an M3 is insane. Maybe for a limited edition exotic, but for a car that is available for MRSP?

That ridiculous markup tactic is why I got a 335xi with mods rather than a Nissan GT-R or M3.

The MSRP on my window sticker shows $56,500.

That $25,000 market adjustment should be illegal. I'm surprised BMW NA allows that.

MSRP is easy to get for the M3 if you want it. Might involve using another dealer.

EDIT: That other sticker is chuckle city though. Is the alarm $949 at every dealer? Holy shite.

I like the remark next to the $25K...... "M3 Market Adjustment".

I have been offered two cars at MSRP + 8. If you can't get one at MSRP PM me and I will get you in touch with the dealer that offered me the cars.

Dealers like this are scum. They may end up selling one M3 at that insulting price when a more reputable dealer might sell half a dozen at MSRP.
I am going to visit my local bmw dealer and find out if they have the M3 and take a snapshot of the window sticker. Better be MSRP.

And on top of it, they got balls to charge for wheel locks, paint protection, and alarm. Scammers
