Back in July the cost for our new (ordered) M3 was $4999.00. Upgrade LR AWD, upgrade wheels, and interior and paint color(Blue) I finally got a VIN# and a contract for payment this week. The total cost had risen to $51.750.00. Here in Vermont in order to qualify for a $4K rebate, the car must be all electric, new, and cost under $50K. Also adjusted Income under 50K. It appears that the cost increase has torpedoed our rebate....Car scheduled to be delivered last week of September. More to come. Mask up and prosper'
