I live in Germany 9 month out of the year, I drive an 08 C-6 a e93 335I vert, an 03 Z4
sport and am picking up a 135 and will be replacing the 335i with the M3 convertable
(wifes) The Vette may lose to a M3 Sedan once the facelift is complete.
You don't know much about what others pay for BMWs do you ?
When were you in Germany?
What was that Vin of your ED 335 and I can have someone check your accuracy
One euro is worth $1.50 dollars easy ( hit 1.60 last week )
A 135 with the same equiptment as a US 135 with ZPP and ZSP is US $38K
A German buying the same German spec car in EUROs is paying 59K euros
which is what $87K USD for a loaded one series
Play with the M-3 and the $69K USD I am spending on a US spec Vert for wife
is near 96K Euros with the same option codes in Dollars $146K ???
The warranty in Germany is 2 years unlimited miles NO MAINTAINENCE
The US Warranty is 4 years 50 K Mile with maintainence
You are touched if you think BMW is Overpriced in the US !!
I almost feel guilty as an American working for our government as I can buy at special pricing even below what stateside is , the Germans think we are Gazillionaires, did you know that the 3 series could be a 4 cylinder ? THats why Euopeans take the badge off their cars or order the free Model delete !
I lived in Japan and Korea, they find BMWs to be very high end cars and pay a huge premium, the Aussies pay $85K for a 135 and over $100K for an M-3
BMW Needs the US market, Yes you can buy a one coupe here thats lighter and has less, for More than you pay in the states ! I would be glad to find you one !
In the 30s they had a Movie where a guy sang a song "If I only had a brain"
