M3 Pricing Details: Available for Less Than $60,000

TheCarConnection is telling us today starting prices on the new BMW M3 Coupe and M3 Sedan will ring in at less than $60k. The V8 powered, 414 hp fraternal twins will be rolling out the door with the coupe priced at $57,275, the sedan will set you back $54,575. We're not sure if this is a bargain or not yet since the last copy of the M3 ran in the $50k range with 333 ponies from the inline 6. First copies will be available for flogging sale in March. What say you? Will you be lining up for the performance bargain of 2008, or passing on a BMW that's jumped the shark?
