Agreed, your thoughts have been pretty much in line with my contact from the beginning.

$45k, but very well equipped.

The EURO is weak, BMW has no competitors, there will not be a $20k gap between 335i and M3.

There is a $20K price gap between the 550 and the M5.

?

The BMW site quotes 330i, 325i and 335i. Obviously it wouldn't mention the 328i as that's a specific configuration for one or two markets.

not following

Sorry, double post.

Does this forum only accept posts in duplicate these days?

No worry here, the M is next. 45K MSRP for the coupe is my guestimate.

I expected more guesses as to the price of the coupes by now. Seeing that it is only going to be 2 models (no expensive 330 coupe slotted in there) I think it allows BMW to price the 335i coupe lower. They seem to be heading upscale with the coupe, (as if the sedans price wasn't upscale enough for my bank account ) but doesn't anyone think they will try to keep the starting price under $40k for the 335i (like $39,500). That would still be around 3 grand more then the 330i sedan and allow the starting price to be under $40K. After a few conservative options the car will cost around $45k anyway. In my mind that is best case scenario.

Wonder how much a 335xi sedan would cost?

That's curious...smack dab between the 325i and 330i. Even the torque has been adjusted perfectly. Marketing, anyone?
Agreed, that is very much marketing. It's the due consideration for the current 330 owners. We all know there is really no cost factor involved in tuning that engine to whatever output they want up to the current 330 level.

I agree that it will be under 40........but for the sedan not the coupe.... i think the coupe will be 41 and the sedan will end up being 39500......... imo......

I would bet on low 38K range for the sedan...just under 39K with destination included.

But the 335 has a twin turbo (300hp) so with just a few minor options...easily $47k
also this new coupe is totally redesign (looks nothing like the E90...maybe a lil)...I think it'll start base @ around $40k

Same wheelbase....a little longer & a little wider;;just like last time.
People will be able to see that the cars are similar enough.
I certainly don't see the same differences between the E90 & the E92 that I can clearly see between the E60 & the E63.

Why would anyone pay more for a 335i Coupe if they can pay less for a 335i Sedan?

I agree. Based on an article floating around from Autoweek, Turbos and other techno advancements are the wave of the future for BMW, even the Mini S is going turbo. Its all about fuel economy/power ratio, and this will make or break a manufacturer going forward. The 335 turbo engine will be mainstream IMO. Also I dont think it will command a high premium as others say because it will aslo be competing with the IS350 and G35.

On a sidenote if the guys at Nissan did not do their homework and deliver a V6 that give the same subpar fuel economy I believe they are in for a big dissapointment in sales if gas continues to be $3+/gal

There have been numerous replies on this thread with people waiting anxiously for 335 sedan when and if it becomes available.

But isn't a bi-turbo new for BMW, atleast in recent past? Usually it takes them 2-3 years after the release of a new product to fix issues/bugs. So, even if bi-turbo debuts this year, I would rather wait 18-24 months before getting a car with it.

Also, do you think the 5 series and X5 would get the bi-trubo soon?
