The UK was alloted 700 BMW M3’s for the 2007 car year and with much applause they have reached that mark 4 months ahead of schedule. So does this mean that BMW has come up with a winning design with this year M3 or that the economy in the UK has allowed some happy shoppers to splurge?
Judging by the options shopping the M3 buyers were adding it would seem that money was not the object for the M3 shopper. The (far from) average M3 buyer typically added 4700 pounds in options to their new car. Two of the popular options choosen were the 19″ rims and the DAB digital radio.
For those in the UK who are feeling like the missed the M3 boat just hang on to those BMW dollars. For the 2008 model year BMW will be releasing 2000 M3’s onto the market. The question will be how many of those will the UK driving population gobble up?
