Matthew Davidson ASKED THE GUIDE

BMW and Porsche Australian pricing?

Looking at the articles on the latest M3 and M4 pricing, I think BMW, Porsche and others are taking the mickey. Porsche pricing is silly compared with the Mercedes A45 AMG I have ordered. In Britain, when optioned to the same specification as the Australian car, the A45 costs roughly the same as a Porsche Boxster S. Here, it costs half the price of a Boxster S. Porsche and BMW need to adjust their prices before Benz kills them off.

It's a two-way street, not straight profiteering, as Mercedes-Benz Australia is accelerating the value of its cars in a way that's paying off mightily for buyers and undermining rival brands.
