Who buys 30k luxury cars with 4 cylinders? I think BMW found this out as they've replaced the 318 with the 323. Isn't not losing stoplight races to Neons something a buyer of a 30k car would want? The fact is, the SE competes in the luxury model against other 5 and 6 cylinder sedans -- TL, C280, 328, A6, ES300 and GS300, Catera, 528, and yes, 300M. And according to C/D, their "as-tested price" was $38,969 (including destination). Whereas you simply cannot equip a 300M to be higher than $30,810.
