Default LXI vs 450

NADA shows the LXI built in 2003 had a base price of $863K. Then they only built the M380 in 2004. Then the 450 was built in 2005 but at a base of $643K. What is the difference between the LXI and the 450 to reduce the price so much? Did BB change standard equipment and add more options to keep the base price lower? Is NADA wrong?


Thanks!

NADA is always wrong when it comes to Birds.
NADA hurts Bird sales everyday.

If I read you right, NADA is wrong and the base price didn't drop $220K. Is the 2003 base correct?


Thought that wasn't right....trust but verify.


Thank you

The 2003 base is right.
No way the 450 would cost less!

2003 LXi's had a suggested base retail price of $686,080.

2005 M450 LXi's had a suggested base retail price of $774,613.

But... you could add options and push the price a lot higher.
