As far as $80K+ for an F model M3... It better be UBER SWEET!!!, because a new 335i with M-Package and Loaded out is only $55K.
I'm sure many of you watch Top Gear, remember when they reviewed the new M5? While they said it was the best car on the planet, all of them said it was hard to justify to extra $$$$$ because the 5 Series was so good. Same theory here. And for the record I've owned an 88' 320is while in Italy, 01' M3, and 08' M3(which I bought new). So I LOVE my M cars... but BMW M cars are quickly losing ground to the pack and $80K+ is hard to swallow.
One more side note; Someone mentioned that most cars can now be equipped with an array to tech goodies standard. My GTI which cost $26K has touch screen nav, bluetooth, heated seats, iPhone hook-up, active steering head lights, key fob, and more. Just another reason the new M3 better bring it in the performance category or else it will get killed by the critics.
