edmunds Inside Line: 135i to be around $30K

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=123122

"Edmunds attended a manufacturer-sponsored event, to which selected members of the press were invited, to facilitate this report."

This is a pretty recent article. What do you guys think? Credible?

The 128i might be 30 grand or less, but expect the 135i to be priced at 34 grand or more.

What!? That would make the 135i more expensive than a 328i coupe, and 2-3K more than the 328i sedan. Not happening, unless BMW decides to substantially increase the price of all its vehicles. I love the 135i engine, but come one, the 328i coupe is much more of a status symbol (which I could care less of, but others do consider this factor), and noticeably more spacious. I love the 135i engine, but I would buy a 328i coupe instead of a 135i in a heartbeat if it were cheaper than the 135i, or within 1-2K of the 328i. Better resale value, too. Not that many people want a super fast small car, except for the BMW 1addicts team, of which I am a proud member.:thumbup:But we are all guessing, including myself; but that's why I think it's important to post price predictions made by major magazines.

i dont know why its hard to believe a 135 will cost more then a 328??? The one is overall a more impressive, faster, more standard options, etc then the 328. And i would NEVER but a 328 coupe over the 135. we are all here cause we love the one. Now....if the price competes with the 335 the that is a different story

This makes sense. If the 135 came close in price to the 335, then BMW would have a problem. But having the 135 at or slightly above the 328 in price is no big deal. I don't see it as an issue. The only people who care are the ones who don't want to spend that much money on 135.
