I'm going to guess mid 50s. The rumored 60K is too much...

There will be a coupe, a cabriolet and a sedan.

i also believe that $60k will put the M3 out of its class' price range. It has to compete with the S4 which has been about 5k less than the current M3.

Im really excited to see an 4door M3 again!

The M3 isn't competing with the S4 though, it's competing with the RS4. the 335i is competing with the S4. I definitely think the new M3 will be ~60k. With the M5 at ~80k it fits pretty well I think.

The RS4 is $80 grand+. The RS4 is an outlier. i dont believe it to be a regular model. and i think it will be made it low volume. BMW is traditionally a little more expensive than Audi regarding the M and S models. Thus, if the m3 is to compete with the RS4, it would be over $80 grand. I know my reasoning is not rock solid, but it is something to consider.

I don't think anyone has to consider that!!!
There is no way that the m3 will cost 80k, and if it does, I will buy you one. That is a promise!! I truly think 65k totally loaded is about right.

Look at the specs of the cars though. The M3 will kill the S4 on HP alone but it's right there with the RS4. It seems to me that comparing performance would be a better indicator as to what a car's competition is as opposed to price alone.

My professional guess:

M3 coupe/sedan... NO convertible.

$53,900 base + $695 Dest. + $1300 Gas Guzz

$68,430... FULLY LOADED

I also think about 55k base.

If the 4 door M3 returns, I will get one. I still lust after the E36 M3/4. Once every couple of months I see some guy in my neighborhood driving around in this:



and I get jealous.

They can't get the price too close to an M5, so I think it should be around $55,000 starting.

The E46 M3 was about $55k with a moderate level of options. I have a feeling that will be the base price of the next version M3. Once you add options, it will probably be in the low to mid $60k's

Keep in mind that a nicely optioned 330i is in the mid $40k's and they are supposed to have a 335i soon.

Seems like most of us agree... mid 50's for a base. Remember that the MY06 M3 base is $50,595 ($48,900+695Dest+1000GasGuz) and that $55,595 isn't that much more for such a massive performance increase. Still seems like a lot of Bang for the Buck to me. :rocks:
