Also BMW already increased their prices on June 1, 2008:
So that is 2.1% more on a price that was already bumped up 2-3 months ago.
Plus they dropped the residuals for leases, plus I am sure they won't have 0.9% financing on 09s, plus they may or may not have the automatic transmission trunk money for dealers meaning a lot less discounting from MSRP for the consumer. . .
All in all it will be a LOT more expensive (maybe close to a 10% increase with all factors considered?) to own a BMW in the future. . .
