My 2011 e90 came in at 38.6k msrp and sales price of 36.5 k and had the options i wanted. with the addition of the "lines", the std idrive and the burdensome packages, the f30 is very expensive now.
Agreed. If you want any of the packages (Modern, Sport, Luxury) your talking around $50K for a 328i based on what my local dealer has on the lot. All of the "standard" 328's are $41-45K, so it looks like they tried to raise their transaction prices $5K or more with the F30. Doesn't appear to have worked so well with these sales numbers...
Also, my local dealer lists an inventory of over 100 to choose from.
