With the US peso basically worthless BMW is better off selling them abroad anyway. X3 starts at $80K in China for example.
Any word on Canadian 2012 Pricing? I put an order in 2 weeks ago, still don't have a production number. I am fine with an '11 as I will keep the car for the long term, but with the Can $ well above par was wondering if there might be a price cut?
