Base price may be about the same but configured price has gone way up. Example, I got a 2011 e92 328xi for $49,500 with nav, premium, convienience, m-sport and BMW apps. At the time I purchased it I had also configured an e90 with all the same equipment minus xdrive for about $46,000.

Yesterday I configured the f30 the same as I did the the e90 last year and the price came out to $49,500! So yeah, you can get a stripped version for about the same as before but they have greatly increased the price on options packages. An almost $4k bump in price is ridiculous. I love my BMW and was planning on getting another when my lease is up but now I'm not so sure. Might just buy mine or look at another manufacturer I can only imagine how much they're going to charge for the 4 series.
