bmw 3 series prices through the years

hi. i was wondering about this information and unfortunately, i have never bought a bnew bmw. i had an e36 and now an e46. i tried searching the forum and google for this information. all i get is used prices. i wanted to know how much the ff car cost per year

2000 323ci in 1999 brand new
2001 325ci in 2000 brand new
2002 325ci in 2001 brand new

so on and so forth

i wanted to see the starting prices they were sold. for example, a 2011 328i coupe starts at 36200 today. how much did your car cost brand new in the past.

Question

Can you tell me how much my vehicle was worth at a specific time in the past?

Answer

You can look up your vehicle's current value using our online Used Vehicle Appraiser. In addition, our staff is happy to email you a customized estimate of its value at a specific time in the past (back to the year 2000), a service we provide free of charge as a courtesy to our visitors.

To request a historical pricing estimate, first collect the following information about the vehicle:

* Year, make, model and the Edmunds style name

* Color and optional equipment

* Date for which you would like the appraisal to be made (back to the year 2000)

* Mileage and vehicle condition at the appraisal date

* Region (state or ZIP Code) where the vehicle was located at the appraisal date

(We encourage you to use our Used Cars research pages to help identify the vehicle's style, optional equipment and/or color.)

Once you have this information, send your historical pricing request to us via our Contact Us form, and we will return an estimate by email, usually within two business days.

While we are pleased to accommodate these requests, please be advised that Edmunds does not certify or attest to the information we provide or otherwise participate in legal proceedings.

My 2001 325i MSRP'd for $35,550 or something close to that. You can take your VIN to the dealer and they'll give you an option sheet complete with the MSRP for your specific vehicle.

My Ride: 2000 323i
According to the window sticker pulled from my file...

2000 323i
Base $26,990
Steel Blue Metallic $475
Gray Leather $1,450
Auto (slushbox for you 5 speed fanboys ) $1,275
Sport/Premium Package $4,300
AM/FM CD $200
Dest Charge $570
Total $35,260

As I recall the 325s were imminent and I bought 9/22/2000 (just turned 10!) so I was given an extremely generous (by BMW dealer standards) 3% discount so I paid $34,202 plus TTL. The cross town dealer was only offering 2% so I had my dealer steal this from their inventory while it was still on the boat from Germany.

When I build a car on the BMWUSA site configured as identically as I can, it comes to $41,250 for a 2011. I believe that represents a 1.6% inflation rate. If you apply the fed's figures for annual inflation rates over the last 10 years the car should cost $44,400, so I guess BMWs have come down in price?

Coupe vs sedan. Coupes had more standard equipment (sport suspension, sport steering wheel and thus cruise + multifunction, folding rear seats, I'd bet even sunroofs were standard).

My Ride: Imola 330i M-Sport
My car is a 2003 330i M-Sport and it cost over 50 grand new back in '03, lol.

An M3 cost over 75 grand back in '03.

Dont be scared by those prices, I live in different country with slightly better economy so thats why its like that.

LOL at US car prices, I just checked BMWusa.com and a starting price for 2011 M3 coupe is $58,000 which is lol to me, as just a few hours North you would pay $80,700 for the same car.

Love these threads, and I'm not being sarcastic.

Your 2003 just hit 190K? nice!

What major problems have you had with the car?

my 2000 328ci with just hit 168k, no far replaced air compressor, lost reverse on tranny, those are the 2 major problems. all others are the usual stuff.

back to this thread, my sister bought a new 330ci 2002 model. $43,000

black leather, harmon kardon, auto, xenons, etc..
