One is for luxury and the other for speed, but there should be some adoptions of features which become standard equipment after a while (like air conditioning etc). However BMW seems slow to transfer options to standard equipment. I guess it's kinda like navigation which is still not standard equipment even on new M3s.
Base msrp was $46,000 when it came out. Not a $70,000 car at all.

Got mine, nearly fully optioned, for $53,000 in 2005.
