Apparently, the BMW F30 3 Series no longer has any secrets from us. At the Los Angeles Motor Show going on these days, the Bavarians have given us one last bit of info.
It is the sort of money an American interested in a 2012 BMW 3 Series will have to part with in order to own one, in other words, it’s the price the Bavarians have set on the U.S. market F30.
Sadly, the new price list, much like the ordering guide that wasn’t leaked a few days ago, there’s nothing about the diesel powered versions of the new 3 Series.
Getting back to the good news that come from the Los Angeles Motor Show, an F30 BMW 328i will start at $35.775 while an F30 BMW 335i costs at least $43.275.
Not exactly cheap, but then again, the BMW 3 Series isn’t aimed at people on aid, is it now?
On average, the difference is just over 1.000 dollars between the new F30 and the outgoing E90 3 Series, a price bump well justified by the options and technology.
A major part of the experience of the 2012 BMW 3 Series will be the introduction of the eight speed automatic gearbox as a standard offering.
The rest goes into the gadgets, that used to be options until now, stuff like start/stop, iDrive, breaking force regeneration systems and so on.
Whichever way you swing it, the pricing on the F30 BMW 3 Series seems just about right as though you get a new model with new exciting components, you pay pretty much the same money as before.
Sure, the i Range stand was impressive in LA, just like it will be in Tokyo but the real world stuff is where it matters even more.
