people are scared to build one ... Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

A fully loaded 330xdrive runs nearly $65,000 + fees + taxes. That's insane. That's F30 340xdrive heavily optioned pricing territory. LOL.

holy gee. Guess my next car wont be a 3 (I have 3 3s in a roll), unless the depreciation on a 1-2 years old is massive and I scoop one up. But then no 3rd pedal...hmmmm

MB C300 is on the same pricing strategy too .... a fully loaded on is hitting $67K + fees + taxes. LOL

Yes both fully loaded are around the same price. Over 65k for a 4 cylinder!!

I’m having a hard time pulling the trigger on a new lease to replace my current 2015 C class as monthly lease prices have gone up so much in the last 3-4 years.

for this example of both brands, you are looking at $900 + taxes OTR (assumption: 39 months /3.9% / 54% / 6% dealer side discount / $0 down / $3200 fees rolled in)

pass. timing chain time bomb (even it has been replaced, given the fact the replacement parts can still be 'hit & miss')

price wise ... overpriced by $2K at least.

That’s crazy. Literally more than 50% higher than what I’m paying now for a well equipped 2015 c300.

you can consider a VW Golf Sportswagen ... probably less costly to maintain.

Do you think 6% discount is feasible on 2019 G20 3 series?

In the Toronto and Vancouver area (with so many dealers), I feel it’s doable as 3 series is the volume movers. In other regions, I feel 5% is doable at launch.
