Stock market crashing any effect on the E92

Hi Guys, i've been following the world economy lately and the stock market looks just horrifying. The world seems to be in a great recession....What kinda effects do you believe that this economy and world market have on the production of the 09's E92 M3... ??? More expensive ? high interest rates ??.. etc. is there gonna be less production cars made ??

Lehman went bankrupt so I can't buy wheels or tires.

MDCT ... so you can drive and eat a hamburger at the same time.

If you couldn't afford one before it is safe to say you still can't now.

All makes will adjust production accordingly.

Up until a few months ago, I thought buying my M3 was a bad investment

BMW cut production on their M models as part of a larger scale down in production across all of their factories. I am not sure of the raw numbers but the WSJ did report this was happening among many German manufacturers.
