after all this new info has been released the general consensus is that it will be in the 60k range but hey we are complaining now but wait until we first start driving it :rocks: :rocks:

Yeah, my bad. Unfortunately everything you search "M3 Specs", you get alot. I am hoping the admins do some consolidation.

I say BS

I find it hard to believe they are going to charge this price.

"Starting UK price £50,625"

This is equal to a price of 100,017.53 USD!

Is there something I am missing here? Is there something built into the UK price to make up for the projected increase of $40-45,000 US?

IF the performance were to be sub 4 sec 0-60 and Qtr miles in the 11 Sec range I could understand. I couldn't afford it, but I could understand. I have to be missing something.

Tbone can you delineate where the stock equipments end and where the options begin? I am assuming BOLD = options?

Nav = stock = iDrive included?

Sorry I can't mate. I just (re)posted the data but I think there are other threads that have speculated on the options.

Unhappy

Baisically we get shafted! thats why when you convert the prices they are exagerated, as sterling is stronger when we are importing (which is mainly what we do) the price has to be increased to cover the exchange from exporting country plus our wonderful goverment adds on allsorts of taxes n dutys adding nearly 25% to purchase prices, everything expensive here £1 for 1 litre of fuel, its going to be £400 road tax soon per year for the m3 type of car (emission group) they always get you!

The Brits gets shafted for many things but cars, no one gets it worse than the Danish (Denmark).

Apparently the M5 works out to between $250,000 - $300,000 USD.

What does this mean? "295km/h delimiting" Is this an option? You can de-limit top speed of 155mph? But, 295km = 183mi ...

I'm guessing it means the top speed will be 183mph after being delimited.

I think you need to get the appropriate speed rated tires before they delimit it.

Also 183 sounds right for the top speed for a 400+ hp motor

Correct, 183 mph w/o electronic limiting. This top speed was stated in the May '07 Winding Road article on the engine (p. 79, download here: http://www.windingroad.com/).

Good point--even Michelin PS2s are only Y-rated (168 mph). You would need a W rating (186 mph). The ContiSportContact 2 Vmax is rated up to 220 mph, which might be overkill for the M3.

Even if it's standard in the UK, it doesn't mean it's going to be standard everywhere else in the world.
