2008 M3  [0.00]
LA Auto Show - $80,000 E90 M3

I felt this needed to be in here.

From Los Angeles;
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95475

Quote:
So today I'm watching the KTLA morning show and I see the newscaster broadcast live from the LA Auto Show.

They then proceed to talk about BMW and the new M3.

The representative on behalf of the LA Auto Show then mentions the "pricing" of the new M3.

He says, "This right here is the new M3, a big car for BMW enthusiasts. It's about $80 thousand dollars".

WTF?

I'm not sure if he mentioned the US official price?

Maybe this is the price of the car fully optioned and after taxes?

I also noticed a little podium with specs near the car just as you all have seen at the Frankfurt Show and the Toyko Show.

Possibly the MSRP came from the podium?

Anyone else hear any numbers from the LA Auto Show?

Discuss.
Here comes the fire and brimstone...

I'd say it's probably fully optioned, and somewhere in the mid/high 70's (...which is why the rep approximated $80k).......

...which makes sense (..somewhat!!!!) considering most of us speculate that the base price for the coupe will range somewhere between $57-62k.

If it turns out to be true, it shall be an easy decision NOT to buy the M.

I call it BS. Could you imagine, KTLA Morning Show gets the inside scoop and turns out to be the venue for release of the US price?

Is $80k even a reasonable number to consider with theoretical MSRP of $62k? Thats 18k in options and tax. Well the tax I can see bumping it up a bit that thats still extreme. I was really hoping it wouldn't break the big EIGHT OH.

That will be sad

But if you think about it - it is easy to load the car to that level:

Base 65000
leath 1450
nav 2100
shade 350
heat 500
PDC 350
Ipod 400
Prev sound 700
Sirius 595
DCT 2500
dest 750
gaz guz 2000
76695
5% Tax 80529.75

And That is not all the options.

Used M5 (2008 with 5k miles), Z06, 997S, GT-R - all better alternatives
Or: Evo 10 + mazda Mx5 + Honda CRv - My whole family will have good cars

I still believe that the $80k was an over-estimation.

Good LORD!!

If the fully optioned E92 M3 is $80K, I shudder to think what a fully optioned convertible will cost. In another post, I "guessed" the convertible would start between $60K - $65K. It appears that "guess" was way off base. If the usual $10K premium for the convertible (vs coupe) applies, that would take the M3 convertible's price into the $90's. Unimaginable territory for a 3-series, and certainly too rich for my blood. I've got $75K set aside for the purchase and had my heart set on the convertible. Now I'm not so sure.

The only reason we are even still discussing is because this guy's clueless randomly chosen number is almost, kinda-sorta, if you really exaggerate - justifiable. If he has instead, randomly said $95k, then it'd be a dead point.

And make no mistake - that number was his own creation. No one gave it to him.
