Also, with options this thing will easily top 50k- not so good when you look at what else is out there and what is on it's way.

Again BMW is launching cars that are outside US consumer expectations pricing wise (don't even get me started on a decently loaded 640i GC).

That being said, it is more the probable BMW has chosen this route as the "i"
division has been very expensive to develop and then produce and that cost has to at least be recovered no doubt.

I love when people come on here to complain about how high the prices are, and then bitch when BMWs are no longer exclusive because everyone has one.
Is there really anything besides a BMW?
