So not a huge deal. I mean realistically even on a 20k car what's $200 bucks.
However the M cars get hit hard with the 2k increase. Yikes

What if your boss was to tell you he would lower your paycheck by 1-2%. He believes that since you already making so much, a small decrease would not make much difference. Right?
I don't get your point. If I was making $60,000 and he cut my pay $200; I wouldn't even notice.

Soooo no one here understands inflation? This past year the value of the US dollar went down 1.9% (2-3% per year is normal) so actually, the $2,000 increase on the M5/M6s means they cost exactly the same now as they did last year. The $2-300 bumps in all the other cars is way below the inflation rate so these cars are actually cheaper now than they were last year.

1.9% inflation on a $50,000 car would be over $900, but the prices only went up $2-300.

Raising it $200 won't accomplish what you want because $200 will raise the leases a few bucks. All this does is line the pockets of BMW. To accomplish what you are saying BMW has to make the lease rates much higher as most cars are leased.

Glad I just got my M6! That extra $2,000 would have been a deal breaker for me... would have had to go with a Pagani Huayra instead.

Considering an average of 2.5% inflation annually, I'd say BMW is making an impressively conscious effort at not upsetting their increasingly price sensitive market, as indicated by all of the surprised sounding contributions to this thread, perhaps

I do agree that lease rates must be higher. A friend was able to lease a 3-series for less than a Accord. So in full agreement.

Sure, why not? It's nothing new. M models typically finish just as the chassis they are based upon goes out of production. The E90 M3 stopped when the E90 3 Series did, the E92 M3 stopped when the E92 3 Series did, and so too will the trend hold for the E93 models.

What a rip off. Especially that $2k mark up on M cars. As if BMW's aren't already overpriced enough. They better keep the next M4 prices somewhat reasonable if they want to sell them, and not scare away customers to much better alternatives on the market, like the C7 vette or GTR.

the $2k on M cars must be to make them heavier than they've ever been before. i love M cars but for that price there's a lot of other cool options out there.
