20084dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Better than the Lexus I was looking at for a much better handling and more luggage space vehicle.
Price of the BMW 5-Series: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20104dr Wagon turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Too expensive for what you get.
20064dr Wagon 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Very expensive car 90K CDN or 60K USD new. Very pricey for a car.
20064dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
for 60k the 5 series seems a bit pricy compared to what you can get from even an acura TL for instance.
20064dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I paid cash, but they do not usually offer incentives on the 5 series. That may have changed in this economy but the 5 series has few incentives.
20024dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed manual RWD
Compared to the implicit value of Genesis, BMW simply charges too much for what you get...$25K delta just not justifiable.

20054dr Sedan supercharged 189hp 1.8L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I bought this model used and for a buyer standpoint was quite surprised of the affordability for a class c. Which in fact confirms that depreciation for this model might be higher than expected.
20044dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.6L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I bought this used and got a very reasonable price.

some basic options are overpriced - metallic paint for over $2000

lower cost than bmw 3 series
