I don't know about the base price, but prices on the new 3 series sedans are much higher than before, not so much because of an increase in base price but due to the many new options and packages that are available. It is possible to partially circumvent this by ordering, but cars dealers are keeping in stock tend to be loaded. A typical 328i went from $40k to $47 and there will be a $1600 price increase for 2013. Perhaps BMW is learning from their experience with Mini and encouraging a higher proportion of customers to order their cars, not just with the individual stuff on the higher end models, but across the line.
