Base MSRP for the E90 M3 is already $56k and the E92 is $59k. There is already a supposed price increases on the way for the 2012 model year.

By 2014/2015, it is almost a certainty that the M3 will be over $60k base. I'd imagine that it would be in the low to mid $60k range.

The base MSRP for my E93 328i has increased by over $4k in the 3.x years that I've owned it so far...

Wish the bottom facia wasn't all black and had some vertical lines from the bumper. Also hate, hate, hate the stupid fn gear shift. My loaner cars have them and I simply hate them. Counter intuitive. Technology for the sake of it.

Do keep in mind that the person who created this image (most likely) is not affiliated with BMW AG, so they have no reason to depict images resembling current BMW models.

Furthermore, the artist might very well BE an AUDI fan and has envisioned the next BMW (in his mind) to be more like an Audi...as such, this picture reflects his likes/wants.

the back is cool. the front looks like a ma'fkin VW Jetta front. wtf... even the lights resembles the jetta, they just morphed it a little bit.

look at the joint bumper+hood combination, i hope that won't make it out on the final

Ok, now I'm not shooting you down or anything of the sort, commradery means something to me, BUT:

Corporations of BMW's size who DEPEND on trends..furthermore who depend on SETTING trends in a certain market (luxury automobiles).. tend to "fool" or "deceive" any audience who might tip their competitors off. We...the first most interested audience, will search a picture over for even the most minute details, such as minuscule lines and how the headlights meet the grills etc.

BMW knows this. They are a professional corporations worth billions, and those billions they use to keep ahead of the pack (MB, Audi, Cadillac). Part of keeping ahead means keeping secrets, no doubt about it. BMW designs award winning, "JOY" filled luxury cars....but do keep in mind, to create a ground breaking luxury automobile you must keep private the things you intend to release. As such, (take my word) BMW uses bolt-on/non-production parts to "deceive" our enthusiast audience so their competitors do not get early hints on BMW's 2012/13/14 design aspects. I'm an -un named- corporate executive in the auto industry, but my telling you this shouldn't surprise most of you who have seen previous "leaked" (not so much) photos of pre productions cars. It is obvious that BMW alters the test mules externally, look at ANY PAST BMW VEHICLES during early/mid test phase and you will see my point proven. BMW, as a rule, does not solidify their post-production model until they have VIEWER INFLUENCE from their beta model..as they call it, or as we call it the "concept."

Have no doubt what you see in these renders is close. For example, I can confirm the grills will be as seen here, but not the headlights. The rear is off, but it WILL be slanted towards the car's fore end (the tail pipes sit low, the Mtech rear was a surprise, obviously the artist's imagination; and the headlights look NOTHING like the beta version's does now.) Does it appear MB like, or as one mentioned, Audi A4 like? Yes, it does. Does this mean we are copying them? NO. It means a trend is being followed and the corp is capitalizing on it, don't hate. I might also mention that the side skirt design is a little off (near production, a little less aggressive than M has in mind) , and that the side blinkers are near spot on. I dislike the chrome but..I'm not the boss.

Rest assured, this is ~75% accurate. The other ~25% will be put in stone AFTER the "concept," or as we say "beta" version is on display.

** EDIT: I would like to add that the POST CONCEPT viewer influence determine WHO BMW selects as their parts manufacturer (in part). If you could see some BMW AG parts purchase orders, or PO's, you would understand. These PO's only go out when BMW is CERTAIN of what it's purchaser's (you) want in their future BMW. We might not get it spot-on, but once the general idea is laid it is "rolled with." Once leadership rolls with a design beta/"concept" the PO is set and production begins.
