BMW Improves Value For 2005 Models

BMW IMPROVES VALUE FOR 2005 MODELS
08/31/2004

Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) For All BMW Models Are Announced
Woodcliff Lake, NJ, August 31, 2004... BMW of North America recently announced product updates and pricing for the 2005 model year. The entire 2005 BMW model range has been enhanced with newly standard equipment and features, reaffirming BMW's commitment to building increased value across all Series.

MY 2005 Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) for all BMW models are attached.

All 3 Series Sedan, Coupe and Sports Wagon models are now equipped with the power moonroof as standard. The power top is now standard for the 325Ci Convertible, joining the 330Ci Convertible. Also on the 330Ci Convertible, many of the features from the Premium Package are now standard resulting in a very high level of standard equipment.

The 525i receives larger 17-inch Star Spoke cast-alloy wheels as standard equipment, replacing the previously standard 16-inch wheels. New standard Poplar Grain wood trim, formerly part of the Premium Package, enhances both the 525i and 530i models.

In fact, wood interior trim is now standard on most models, contributing luxury and value to many base models. Optional aluminum and alternate wood trims are also available at no charge.

Park Distance Control and Adaptive Headlights are now standard on all V8 models, including the 545i, 645Ci, 645Ci Convertible, 745i, 745Li, X5 4.4i and X5 4.8is.

Fog lights are now standard across all BMW models.

Automatic Climate Control is now standard across all BMW models, with the exception of the Z4 Roadster 2.5i. Cruise control is now standard on the Z4 2.5i.
All 2005 models are available (as an option or accessory) with SIRIUS satellite radio, known for delivering the very best in commercial-free music and premium audio entertainment. BMW Assist, which conveniently delivers both occupant security and premium concierge services to enhance the BMW driving experience, is available for all models.

Now if they could prevent the oil pump nut from backing out we would have a real winner

Value? Bull. I looked at a few 3 series and prices are up $600 or so. I also noticed they changed a few colors.

I think all coupes/verts now come with white turn signal indicators, whereas previously it was only 330s with sports packages (I think)....

Somehow I just do not associate "value" with the BMW brand name.

I always find it funny that when car manufacturers talk about increased value, they never mention increased prices.

MSRP went up 200 dollars, they include the alum trim for "free" and all the options stayed the same price. I have had an 05 M on order for a month and just got my pricing Saturday.
