My CA just told me that according to BMW's official release, this doesn't apply to M3's (and doesn't appear to apply to M's in general).

1% is hardly inflation. Prices have been decreasing. Stop watching Fox News.

Fox News regularly states that we are in a stagflation or deflationary period at present. Back on topic, though, there is zero justification for a price increase.

Well, looks like I won't be getting another BMW after this one. With the way they are increasing prices I just won't be able to afford another new 3. Oh well

Well, not everyone can afford to own a BMW....

1% is very low compared to previous years. So $400 will keep you from buying a BMW 3 Series? Excuse me please.....

It's the way it is, everything costs more money every year!

even with the 2011 increase, a 328 still costs less than it did in 2009...

example:

2009 328xi, zcw, zpp, zsp, 205, 322, 522, 677, 655, PDC, metallic paint, shades & HD radio =$48,945

2011 328xi with increase: exact same level of options $46,575... plus this includes ipod usb, and an alarm


it would be the same with any 1 series as well. Basically only the 335's, X5/X6. Z4's & 7's may be slightly more
