    you can option it out into the 90's man. I think just adding Premium and some other logical options would have you in the mid-70's in that car.

    So glad all current BMW's are ugly, so I am not upset I can't afford one.

    Well, yeah you can option it that high. But that is up to you really, I mean you don't really need HUD and side camera that coast $3500? Or a $1700 comfort access key? I mean these options (including the luxury package for vented seats for $2400 and two types of sport packages from $2600 to $3800) weren't available on the E34 (probably not available on the E39 as well) so it's understandable that optioned out the price will be ridiculous.

    This isn't even anything compared to a Porsche where they even have valve stems as an option.


    You guys are overreacting about the price. Just buy it w/o options, I'm sure the standard features will more than suit you. If you want a heavily optioned car for a cheaper price, then get Japanese or maybe even American.

    I can understand if you're not in America though and you have to pay crazy taxes or simply have a higher msrp in that country.

    I'm just glad they're all ugly so I'm not tempted to buy one I mean 56k for a non M 3 series is pretty fucking ridiculous already and isn't the 1M close to 50? Shit ain't even a real M for god's sake.

    Well the 1M is a marketing gimmick but people still went crazy for it. It's limited so it sold really well.

    Also, the M3 starts at $60k so I really do not get the people optioning up a 335i to M3 price. Now that is ridiculous.

    M3 DCT in Japan: 10,680,000 yen (that's like $125,000)... plus 5% VAT, $1000 for weight tax, and then annual tax of about $1000, all paid to take delivery :fu:

    Hmm. I know my family in Thailand farm sticky rice, but never thought about farming in Japan. Learn something new today and it's early, lol.

    Hmm. I've budgeted $25, 000 for a car in Vancouver. Not sure if I should go forr a new domestic or get a 2008+ import. Would love a 3 series but I'm not sure I want to drop that on a car that's going to be old/in need of maintence in a year or two. Ideas?
