Those on this board will probably buy anyway but I believe that many thousands of others will be led to move to a G35, C350/C300, or an IS250/350that can be had much cheaper than the 09 3er. And that's a sad thing.
Not to mention the 2009 Audi a4 and a5 which are pretty nice cars from what I have seen.
