Wasn't the E60 around $81k loaded back in 2005? I think they out priced themselves for this generation which means the next M3/M4's are going to start at $70k, watch.
If I'm not mistaken, F10 M5 increased by $8-10k compared to E60 which is "ok."

However, you got more "exclusivity" with E60 M5 such as engine that shared parts with F1 race cars, full leather option (was not available on non-M E60), exclusive steering wheel, body kits that were very different from non-m E60, etc.

E60 M5 and E92 M3 engines won engine of the year 4-5 times in a row.

This turbo F10 M5 engine didn't win even in its 1st year.
