You can spec a new BMW M3 to over £100k (admittedly this will have stuff the Model 3 doesn't), but I think that even at £60k the Performance is decent value. That said, it used to be much better value and the Long Range is a much better buy.

I think the invoice price for my 2019 Performance was something like £49k. eek

From memory I think it was £50k when I was buying. It chopped around a lot.

I'm sure we've all done it, but well worth a play with the taycan config if you havn't biggrin

yes
A lot of nay sayers will say you can't compare it to a BMW M3, but when you start looking at what BMW/Audi/Merc do offer at that price point, you'd have to go fish for some serious discounts on an M340i to get it in the same budget.

i did.

Not as plush inside or special overall as an M3, RS4 or C63 but far quicker both on paper and in the real world, more practical and more useable on UK roads and after working out the TCO over a 3 year period is going to cost me around 50% of what those ICE alternatives would have done.

These cars are all compromised by weight and other practical concerns anyway so I'll bank the difference until I'm ready to buy a toy that delivers a proper driving experience when fun is the only priority to consider.

For ref our M3P costs £799 a month which includes maintenance, supercharging/BP charging and insurance for 12k miles per year. We're also not locked into a long term deal.

The new M3 on similar terms is £1200 a month + insurance + fuel + maintenance with a 3 year commitment.

You did well there, EV prices seem to be doing the opposite of every other tech product, instead of going down with time they are going up!

£100k+ for a BMW M3......clearly there must be some proper earning ££££££ during the pandemic!

I certianly raised an eyebrow when I saw that latest price rise.

I bought my M3P in Sept last year, when it had a £3K incentive (So price was ~£53K). Sure I miss out on the facelift stuff, but there's now a ~£7K price gap between mine and a new one.
