Beautiful! Love that steering wheel!
Just wish the radio/phone controls were on the left side so that I can always keep my right hand on a 6MT.
Please bring it all to the US, diesel too!

06-08 Gallardos used to be flooding the market at $80,000, and now they are unable to find under $100,000.
lolol

This must just be a "California" thing, or else its the first time in history that depreciating assest have gained value...

I can gurantee you my car isn't worth more now that it was 2-3 year ago...

It's definitely not normal, but it's happening. The problem is worsened by the fact that next to nobody leased cars when the economy started tanking so now there's not enough inventory to go around. Pair that with an increased demand for used cars (because people cannot afford shiny new ones) and that's where we are.

Have you looked at the prices of E36 M3s? They're absolutely insane

Sounds like i need to start transporting cars out to California from the south...

M cars are very volatile and range greatly in how well they have (or haven't) been used and abused...

What's the point of this car? Wouldn't the X1 35i make a far better M package?

It's slightly smaller, weighs less, has HYDRAULIC STEERING, similar ground clearance, etc.

In Norway the first F31 M Sport cars have started to arrive. These pictures are from a garage with poor lighting but I share them nonetheless.

Can not wait to get mine end of September

Yeah when I saw the first M Sports at my dealer the weekend I ordered, I was like "are you sure they're M Sports?" cause the wheels looked like 16" jobbies under those arches. then I saw the 19s and knew it was a no brainer
