E90 M3 South African pricing out ...

R16 000 less than the E92, or about 2.5% less. May mean $1-2k less for the E90 in the US. Cool for those who dig the sedan.

Yes, car-jacking does occur a lot. The singer was reggae star Lucky Dube, and no driving with an ///M3 is not the best way to die. That's sensationalist newspaper BS.

There are hundreds of ways to die, in SA or the US and in SA dying in a carjacking is certainly not the most common way to go.

South Africa does have a high crime rate, but does not stop people from driving nice cars and having fun in them.

Just yesterday I had a 'breakfast run' to the picturesque Cape Point with a bunch of E30 BMWs, 325i, 325iS and 333i's (the E30 BMW being one of the more popular hijack vehicles) and we had a ball. No hassles, no worries.

People blow things out of proportion.

It only takes once to get "blown out of proportion...." that is, it only takes one bullet to end you're life. If you're the one getting shot through the noggin', who cares about media hysteria. The murder rates in SA are massive.

You're right, it only takes one bullet and you're dead, in Johannesburg or a city in the US.

Media hysteria makes South Africa sound like Columbia or Zimbabwe. I'm not denying the problems here, what I'm saying is, it makes it sound worse than it is.

All I don't want to see happen is people from the US reading this forum to get the wrong impression and miss out on SA's beauty and fun because of one post, that's why I responded. "driving an M3 is the best way to die" - just not true

We could go on about this for hours and this thread is about M3 pricing, so I'll drop it for now.
