Today's MotoringFile article implies that the Roadster and Coupe should be available sometime in 2011. I anticipate one to teeter on the $41k mark the way I would want it equipped. Since I definitely intend to purchase one, if I wanted to pay cash in full, I'll have to sock away about $2,200 a month starting now!
For the sake of math, I spec'd out a topped out 2010 JCW Clubman at $42,595. To get a payment in a reasonable amount of around $600, I'm looking at a $10,000 down payment! That's only around $500 a month I'll need to shove under the mattress, post haste! EEK!!
