Pretty well loaded up M3

Saw this today at the dealer while getting my 1200 mi service done. Pretty well equipped but with sport cloth..What do you think? Sorry for the cell phone pics but its all I had on me when I was there.

No premium package? Not many fans of speed cloth around, I know there are a couple on this forum. Don't think it will sell, especially at that price.
Speed cloth+MDCT just doesn't seem right together..........

Now there is some logic that I cannot wrap my head around.

I like speed cloth, and wish I could have gotten it in my E93. But this car here, at 70k is too much. I woulda killed all the extra options accept M-DCT, 6FL, 6NF, and Assist.

Too much. You can get a better one with a lower price.

My thought exactly. Makes no sense whatsoever.

I got my answer. I had mixed feelings about a car this loaded with no premium just wanted to see if you guys felt the same. Looks like I'm not the only one who thought it was kind of a cooky package configuration. Maybe I can come back in a year from now and offer 13k off LOL.

+1. Speed cloth is awesome, and I think it goes great with M-DCT. Why wouldn't it?

As for this car, I'd be more concerned about the price, rather than the options configuration. BMW was foolish to not allow speed cloth with premium package!

I think it's a subtle bash on M-DCT being slower than 6MT and thus not deserving of "Speed" Cloth. Kind of like speed stripes on a VW beetle.

The responses to this thread seem much more kooky than usual, and that's pretty kooky for this forum. How in the world does anyone here know what the actual dealer price on that car might be?

That's a picture of the MSRP people! That sticker doesn't get changed no matter how much the dealer discounts it, because it's required by Federal law on every new car sold in the US. Mine said $77.9, which I thought was too much, so I paid $61.5 on a new '08 a few weeks ago.

Lose the carbon leather, Ipod, Smartphone, BMW assist, sat radio and add heated seats and that is exactly the car I would order.
