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.
I agree to some extent but you need to factor in inflation/cost of living adjustment over the years. Like you said, I think one reason is the F10 M5 is overpriced and at $100-$110k, buyers have other options. The M5 targets a specific niche of buyers and this has always been the case even with past generations. M5s will not sell in the volume of regular F10s. I'm not sure why dealers would order so much M5s in their dealer stock. They may very well be cancelled orders. I don't think a dealer will have 17 535s in stock at a given moment let alone just M5s.

I think the M6 CG will suffer more. That car is way overpriced. Buyers in that range have much more options elsewhere.
