SCOOP: BMW M3 pricing!

2007-05-23 19:03
Few have been able to build as much anticipation as BMW's latest generation M3. It makes landfall in September, and we have the prices!

The new M3 is on its way, and the figures make for interesting reading already without even having to lay an eye on the physical vehicle itself. The M3 concept was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March and images and information on the production version surfaced shortly thereafter.

At launch, local E92 M3s will be offered with a choice of eight exterior colours and four upholstery and trim colours.

And while the base price for the latest M3 is not unexpected, add some nice-to-haves and the price gets bumped up considerably.

Add R55 000 for the M Dynamic package, R18 000 for the 19-inch alloys, R12 000 for active steering and R26 400 for the TV function in conjunction with the top-end navigation system that will cost your R 20 000. Other cost options include PDC, power mirrors, high-end sound systems, seat heating and voice controls.

Stock standard, this V8-powered monster will cost you R650 000, assuming you can find an opening on the order book, of course?
