Well that's just you and I think all the interest in pricing shows that you're an exception.

A few grand here and there makes a difference to most people, and so does an extra $40-$100 a month. It's not really about being able to afford the payments, it's about whether it's reasonable to pay that much for a certain car.

The 3 series has a lot of competition, and I'm sorry, but as much as I love the look of the new 335 coupe, there's no way I'm paying $44,999 base for it. There are way too many alternatives that are much more affordable without giving up too much.

My prediction: BMWNA will release the info right before they close their doors at 5:00 pm on the East Coast in New Jersey; should be posted here shortly thereafter...

I meant more of a difference between 39k and 41k. At a 2k difference, I would consider the 335 with one fewer package (maybe skip the premium or something)

Question

When this pricing is announced, will it likely just be the base price for the car by itself, or will we get all of the good info, like price for the car, AND options/accessories (and maybe invoice pricing to, so we know how to do our homework for bargaining)?

Price Speculation Summary

Prices are now out! The offical base msrp is $40,600. And even though this thread was only friendly competition, it's fun to see who thought what.

Here are the results. Estimates with hi lo ranges were averaged. My apologies in advance if I either misinterpreted your estimate or had a typo. I included all 3 of Cntlaw's estimates for fun.

Ase2dais was closest to the pin.

Member Estimate Variance (Over) Variance%
Rudolfo 40065 535 1.3%
WestWest888 40065 535 1.3%
User1 39400 1200 3.0%
Cntlaw #1 45000 (4400) -10.8%
Cntlaw #2 41000 (400) -1.0%
Cntlaw #3 40000 600 1.5%
Klu 41500 (900) -2.2%
Justindo 39999 601 1.5%
RichReg 39995 605 1.5%

ase2dais 40500 100 0.2%
oilbelcher 40000 600 1.5%
deucedeuce 42499 (1899) -4.7%

Sorry about the formating. It looked a lot better in excel.
