Buyers interested in a new BMW will start paying a bit more for their Ultimate Driving Machines, beginning yesterday. The Munich, Germany-based manufacturer has announced price hikes across nearly its entire range, covering model years 2013 and 2014, that will sting higher-end customers in particular.

Price increases are enough to get any consumer riled up, but the incremental nature of BMW's increase makes it a bit easier to swallow. All 1 Series and remaining 3 Series Convertibles (including the M3 Convertible) will see a $300 increase in price. All current-generation F30 3 Series, 5 Series GT and X3 crossovers will get their price bumped by $200. $500 increases are coming for the 6 Series range (not including the M6), while the diminutive X1 gets just a $100 increase.

Cars on the losing end of the price hikes include the newest M cars, the M5 and M6 Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe, which are being bumped $2,000. BMW is adding $1,000 to the sticker of all Z4s and the entire X6 range, including the X6M.

Prices, meanwhile, for the 328d, 3 Series Sports Wagon, 3 Series GT, 4 Series Coupe, 5 Series Sedan, 7 Series and the new X5 will remain at the previously announced levels. Take a look below for the full press release from BMW, including tables that show both the old and new prices for each model, along with the amount of the October 1 price increase.

      Hmm......higher price usually means the competition isnt that good and they can get away with the hike......or the quality is better then the competition.......in either wah, the 3 series is not.....I think BMW has been riding.on its laurels for too long......and people are waking up to it....

      I don't understand how they can raise their pricing, especially on their M cars? The dealership by me has two brand new 2013 M5s that have been there a year for one and almost 9 months for the other. They have not dropped the price either or advertised any discounts. Meanwhile the 2014s have been on lots now for about a month. I have driven across at least 6 states and back three times this year and have seen one F10 M5 on the road and that includes Chicago and Dallas.

        Just because the MSRP increased doesn't mean my haggling limit increased. The price problem would be between the dealer and the manufacturer. They can't get me the price I want? Bye.

        I'll be honest I did not find the 2013 M5s to be that compelling compared to a 550. Definitely not 30k more compelling. I am however interested in the new 2014 M5s with the performance pack but I'm waiting to see how the M3 turns out.

      Really, 45k for a 4 cyl 3 series? They are going the wrong way on pricing. I think I have bought my last BMW.

        Guess you'll have to check out Audi or Cadillac. Oh wait, they also charge $45k+ for 4-cylinder sedans. And seriously, don't all automakers increase prices with each new model year? Reporting this "news" only provides an outlet to AB's relentless BMW haters.

          I remember when the last E Class came out (2010?) it was actually cheaper than the outgoing model.

        Model bloat. You can get an updated, similarly sized and functioning BMW relative to the older 3 series, for the same money or less. Its just starts with a 1.

      Increases on their main models varying from $100 to $500 amounts? OH NO, that's so much money!! Seriously, that's so unreasonable BMW!! People shopping for Hondas and Toyotas should be able to afford BMWs as well. I mean, it's not like BMW is a premium luxury vehicle manufacturer or anything.

        I couldnt tell by your sarcasm your undying love.for bmw........and tell me, if BMW along with other german brands were up to snuff about being a premium luxury brand.....why are all introducing cheaper models across the board from small FWD cars, CUV (cars on stilts), etc.........yeah, I cant wait to get my BMW X0.5 gran coupe carbio.........

          Car companies are there to make money, Mercedes are doing the same thing, Porsche do the same thing through Volkswagen (and their part ownership for many years), all of the luxury brands of the modern age, from Ferrari, to Bentley, all have support from companies which sell cheaper models, I can't think of an example of a large manufacturer that doesn't.

          Another blog had a hilarious suggestion for naming cars after their price. That way the marketers don't have to think of clever excuses to justify a "328i" badge on a 2.0L turbo engine. I drive a BMW 52,100. It's better than your BMW 49,500.

      I considered buying a 328d xDrive wagon until I priced one out. BMW's prices are getting ridiculous.
